I heard through the grapevine that a potential underlying reason for Google employees shipping new web features is that there is a personal financial incentive for it. I’m not sure if it just looks good on requests for promotions/raises or there is a specific bonus for just shipping a project but either way it’s harmful. I know in one case a Googler said they were going to ship a feature despite fundamental concerns with the API from other browsers because they had an OKR for that quarter to do so.
