People like convenience more than privacy – so no, blockchain will not 'decentralise the web'

What problem is this solving?

Before looking for a solution to the problem that everyone uses Google to find their way around the web, you need to ask why people use Google.

Nobody is required to use Google, other search engines exist, and you can type websites manually into the address bar.

People use Google because it works. Would a blockchain replace Google? No, but I suppose if you could run any other website on a blockchain, you could run Google on it.
