You're kidding yourself. Those people you know who are switching are having no material effect whatsoever:


If anything, their market share is going up.

Google won't be the same company in a few years or so! They are no longer the same company (not run or driven by it's founder's ethos)... most recently saying they will block ad blockers.

Check back on that counter in a few years! It will be a different story I guarantee you!
