Ok, this is going to be a bit of a rant post. I just HAVE to complain about Google, just for a little bit.
<start rant>You know me, I’m somebody who looks at things with a critical view, but with an open view at the same time. There is a reason for everything and before I judge I try to understand that reason first. And you know I can be critical on some things some Googlers might say, but in the end I’m a Google user. Just like everybody else. Although the fact that Bing is not yet available in it’s full potential in Europe does play a role.
But on Googles latest change I cannot for the love of God understand WHY Google implemented this change, and why they don’t have an option to turn it off. I’m talking about the keyboard search functionalities Google implemented last week as part of Instant Search. I’m not a big fan of Instant Search, but I can live with it, it doesn’t bother me. And as somebody who watches what’s going on at the search engines carefully I’m not tempted to turn it off just yet. I want to see how this develops. And as a matter of fact, I hardly notice it.
But the keyboard search… OMG Google… why?? And why can’t I turn the freaking function off???
