Paul Graham on Google Search: Anything might happen

…lately when using Google search I’ve found myself nostalgic for the old days, when Google was true to its own slightly aspy self. Google used to give me a page of the right answers, fast, with no clutter. Now the results seem inspired by the Scientologist principle that what’s true is what’s true for you. And the pages don’t have the clean, sparse feel they used to. Google search results used to look like the output of a Unix utility. Now if I accidentally put the cursor in the wrong place, anything might happen.

Paul Graham

Finally good to see that I am not the only one who has soured on Google and annoyed by company’s Facebook-chasing ways.

    Ditto. I was feeling like it was just me.
