In my on-going quest to validate Google’s Do no evil slogan I have more evidence that Google is becoming evil (or Microsoft is becoming good, but considering IE8 I doubt it).
When you highlight some text in IE8 you get an Accelerator button that lets you perform common tasks on highlighted text (like searching it, or looking up an address on a map, etc.)
When you enter a URL in a cell in Google’s spreadsheet you get a navigate button that let’s you navigate to that URL
Is Google Evil, part 2
Looking at the two buttons they seem very similar to me, too similar. Coincidence? I think not!
