This is probably to compete with "Bing".
Information is on the homepage.
Not sure what to think about it.
They're gearing up towards everyone using Chrome OS. Shame the simplicity of the home page keeps getting spoiled though.
To be honest I never go to that page anymore though I do all my searching through toolbars or omnibars!
I've always wanted my homepage to be that bit more gaudy and take that little bit longer to load.
No, wait, I haven't. Which is why my homepage is about:blank (actually it's not, it's about:robots but we'll ignore that, eh?).
I guarantee you the most searched word on Bing is Google
Now I'm never going to use the word Bing as a verb(?) again.
I think your find Google do have something to worry about Bing's results are quite good these days and more and more people are using Bing. Yahoo has now agreed to pick up Bing's results as of Oct ( I'd have to double check that though ). Google have been loosing their slice of the pie slowly since Bing was launched.
I work in search marketing :P
I am now imagining Google using a catapult to fling slices of pie at Microsoft.
I was thinking more pie chart but yet that works! :D
anyone know how to set it to white without having to log into a google account?
it should automatically be white though...
.com is the only one that gives me the original white back drop.
Maybe it's a timezone thing, and the US is not yet hit the next day?

it's like Barcelona watching Blackpool's Playoff win and panic buying orange kits for next season.
chris_is_cool's sister as the backdrop.
Who uses Google to search for porn?
But if you were you could pick a picture of a naked lady...AND LOOK AT PORN WHILST YOU SEARCH FOR PORN!
This is the face of progress right here. Not to mention the exposed breasts and gaping vagina of progress.
"get this horrific shite out of my eyes" party here.
where can we search now?
apart from the daddy that is Google or www.ask.co.uk (which I can't get to grips with) or www.cuil.com (same) just about the only other general purpose search engine with its own results is www.duckduckgo.com
It's alright. I tried it for a few months, with varied results. And they seem to be pretty good at not harvesting IP addresses, if that's an issue with you ( http://duckduckgo.com/privacy.html ).
www.clusty.com was half decent, but that's been turned into Yippy, so dunno what's going on with that.
When I down-arrow in the entry box I get the following suggestions:
I get nowt.
but I'm a bit confused why the list is only those ones. I also don't ever remember searching for 'your band' or 'doctor utopia'
