Google you plonkers10 Jun 2010
Why do we use Google? Because it is lightweight and fast. What could Google do to make themselves less appealing? Well, I suppose they could add a desktop background that adds to the clutter of the page and requires everyone to download a pointless image, but they’d never do something that stupid, would they?
And they have.
I can only imagine Google are wanting to reduce their monopoly and increase competition in the search engine market, and perhaps that is to be applauded.
