...this is why they didn't find any violations against Google..
The new FTC chairman that is about to replace the current one has close ties with Google and his group has a history of receiving funding $$$ from Google. Infact he authored a paper in 2010 going against doing anything to Google because by doing so it would "disrupt" innovation... He has also said that he won't touch Google matters for at least 2 years after he gets appointed the new position. Well played Google, well played.
Try search for "web browser". Chrome on page 1, Internet Explorer nowhere to be seent on the first 15 pages. Before the FTC conclusion, Chrome was set back but it seems someone at Google has manually set a "penalty" on IE and lifted the penalty on Chrome.
