US State and DOJ Prosecutors are pondering how to dial back Google's dominance, and more specifically they are looking at whether to force the company to sell its dominant Chrome browser and parts of its lucrative advertising business.

Google's situation is seen by some as similar to the one Microsoft was in 20 years ago.
