Will Google be forced to sell Chrome?

One of the big questions of this decade is what needs to be done with the tech giants. Two decades ago Microsoft was the big boogeyman but now there are a bunch of other tech titans that are becoming increasingly powerful. Companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple are not only everywhere in our lives, they also have massive financial firepower and collect huge amounts of personal. This has spurred discussion on what needs to happen to ensure the marketplace remains fair.

Politico wrote last week that the US Justice Department and state prosecutors are looking into Google, and whether the search giant needs to sell its Chrome browser and parts of its advertising unit. If it comes to pass, it would be the first court-ordered break-up of a US company in decades:
The conversations — amid preparations for an antitrust legal battle that DOJ is expected to begin in the coming weeks — could pave the way for the first court-ordered break-up of a U.S. company in decades. The forced sales would also represent major setbacks for Google, which uses its control of the world’s most popular web browser to aid the search engine that is the key to its fortunes.
