Now I made another search and everything looks normal, maybe they are testing sponsor links at top like Altavista. This is just the beginng I think, of the destruction of the great search tool, just wait till they go on NASDAQ then alot of people has things to say and they just want the stock to riese.
Google has started down the road towards complete commercialization. In essence, I think google has peaked and it can really only go downhill from here as they put more emphasis on turning a profit and less on inovation and user experience.
"Google" entered the English language as a widely-recognized verb.
Bitter webmasters aside, I would say that G does a pretty good job of bringing up relevant results, and I haven't seen any evidence that they've stopped innovating.
And why should Google put more emphasis on innovation and user experience and less on turning a profit?
I wonder when people here will stop "demanding" that Google will do for them things for nothing. Hello, Google is not a charity, it is a business entity that is after profit, and rightly so.
One should understand that the purpose of the free search service is to serve the money contributing elements of Google and not vise versa. It is funny how people here "exploit" Google for their earnings but attack it for its commerciality.
I still am scared about Google getting listed, but thats another topic.
Get a real browser. Get a real firewall, and use it to block IE from ever accessing the internet. You won't have problems like this.
