Yes, Google is really big, but how does that make them a monopoly? They have lots of products, but they don't corner the market on any of them. You aren't forced to use Google-anything, there will always a competitor out there willing to offer the same products as Google that is faster/cheaper/more secure/more private/etc.

As long as those competitors exist, the free market is doing exactly what it was designed to do: create more business. In fact, many of these other competing businesses exist solely because of large companies like Google or Facebook. These large companies blazed the trail, which made way for companies to be created that would have never existed otherwise.
