Search Engines Suck
Google used to be neat. You could, through your query string, customise things more or less how you like it. Well, I can’t anymore because of the hateful Google Instant – why anyone thinks this is a good idea is beyond me. I don’t want my searches restricted to 10 farquing useless results, forcing me to open endless windows 10 @#$ results at a time. I want it to spit out 100 so I can skip the cr*p myself. Well, Google has decided it’s their way or the high way.
So I did something I’ve never done before – I used bing. That, unfortunately, seems just as useless – perhaps moreso, trying to outdo Google in lack of usability. I don’t want instant site previews popping up with my mouseover. I don’t want to exchange a cookie just to get basic functionality. I just want a search engine which thinks I’m adult enough to craft my own search terms and browse through my search results.
The utility of searching has decreased markedly over the past couple of years.
