A large swath of the internet depends upon Google's Adsense program to fund operation of websites. Should Google lose it's 800lb gorilla status, it would shake up a lot more than just ABC's stock price.

This could be amazing for humanity. However the depravity of mankind ensures that it will be manipulated to enslave us with misinformation.

Bold emphasis is mine:
... artificial intelligence bot ChatGPT ...

OpenAI, the organization behind it, was co-founded by Elon Musk and Silicon Valley investor Sam Altman in 2015, and makes money by charging developers to license its technology.
...
... Semafor reports that Microsoft is in discussions to invest as much as $10 billion in OpenAI, valuing the company at $29 billion.
...
Bloomberg reports that Microsoft has previously invested about $1 billion in OpenAI.

It’s also working to add ChatGPT to its Bing search engine, seeking an edge on Alphabet’s dominant search offering.
...


If Microsoft is successful at integrating ChatGPT to Bing and the integrated search eats into Google's search dominance, I would expect that M$ will offer a practical competitor to Google's AdSense program too. Way too much $$ on the table for them not to.

More details on the Microsoft investment into OpenAI (and ChatGPT):

Today, we are announcing the third phase of our long-term partnership with OpenAI through a multiyear, multibillion dollar investment to accelerate AI breakthroughs to ensure these benefits are broadly shared with the world.

This agreement follows our previous investments in 2019 and 2021. It extends our ongoing collaboration across AI supercomputing and research and enables each of us to independently commercialize the resulting advanced AI technologies.

  • Supercomputing at scale – Microsoft will increase our investments in the development and deployment of specialized supercomputing systems to accelerate OpenAI’s groundbreaking independent AI research. We will also continue to build out Azure’s leading AI infrastructure to help customers build and deploy their AI applications on a global scale.
  • New AI-powered experiences – Microsoft will deploy OpenAI’s models across our consumer and enterprise products and introduce new categories of digital experiences built on OpenAI’s technology. This includes Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service, which empowers developers to build cutting-edge AI applications through direct access to OpenAI models backed by Azure’s trusted, enterprise-grade capabilities and AI-optimized infrastructure and tools.
  • Exclusive cloud provider – As OpenAI’s exclusive cloud provider, Azure will power all OpenAI workloads across research, products and API services.
