How was Google able to out smart Microsoft ?
It was only a internet company then and Microsoft was already an OS king.

Microsoft got complacent, they assumed OS was the most important thing till it was too late for them to compete with google on online.

Because Google created Chrome, which became the premier browser, and it integrated with Google as the default search engine. So, as Chrome got more popular, so did using Google. As opposed to Microsoft, that had Internet Explorer and Bing. And when people stopped using IE, then they stopped using Bing to for search.

People care more about data and useful apps than an OS. Plus they generated most of their money with ad revenue, which Microsoft did not do. Facebook did as revenue too and made billions.
