I've done a lot of contacting sites, it has worked a few times, like 
for when Ars Technica was identifying 'webkit + linux' as android and 
giving Epiphany a mobile page, but for things like Google I have had a 
huge time getting them to fix stuff (even having friends working there, 
and knowing a lot of people in the Chrome team), and they keep 
releasing broken stuff, so I don't think that scales.
