Apparently Google is more evil than Microsoft

Not really, but depending on where you search...

Looks like Microsoft may have been biding its time to get back at search giant Google. The software company on Thursday launched a beta version of its MSN search engine. If you search for the term "more evil than satan" Google pops up as the top entry.

It may be tit for tat. In 1999, the same search on Google had Microsoft topping the charts.

No big news, but fun to read and since anything related to the big G can't go in Foo, I thought I would post it here.

Searching for "more evil than god" used to give Firefox's homepage as the top result. They seem to have fixed this "problem".

Just tried this search, via msn's list of 200 main search terms.

I have not been able to confirm this as now when you search for "more evil then satan" you get loads and loads of forum threads about the rumour. One thing it does prove though, is that MSN is activly updating it's beta search engine and spidering lots of sites regularly.

just retried search w msn, still Bill G home page at #14 (even took a screenshot; and no, I'm not sad enough to create a spoof page like this).
not seeing so many forum posts; nor actual google page, in these results. #1 is spoof news item about microsoft buying evil from satan.
