Why use Uber Shaders? Why not one giant shader with some ifs.,

HLSL and Cg are almost exactly the same language -- both Microsoft and nVidia cooperated to create a "high level shading language" together. When they were done, MS published their version under the name "DirectX HLSL" and nVidia published theirs under the name "nVidia Cg", but they were both almost the same language (with different supporting tools/APIs/extensions).
So Cg is similar to HLSL?
