Netscape Revamps Search Engine

Funny thing is, go to search.netscape.com and you will see an search banner ad at the top from Google, in addition to a radio button.

See what they mean.

Had a little play, the google is a good additive to netscape, however it must be going through a directory update or something as it is dishing out some very bizarre results for keyphrases.

Results from 'Google on Netscape' seem to correspond to google2 or google3 results I was getting earlier today in response to searches I made after reading this thread [webmasterworld.com] on Google's recent aberrant behavior.

I wonder if Netscape will rotate its Google results - from either 2 or 3 - in synch with the main engine's twirling SERPs? Rotated pages would then always be different on Netscape and Google...

Not that the traffic derived from it doing so will make much of an impression... Besides, I doubt it anyway...

Nah, it's a dumb idea - but I thought I'd share it in order to save some other unfortunate burning neurons and shorting synapses to draw the same silly conclusion :)

I'm getting taken right to Google proper with every search from Netscape. Looks fine to me.
