Mozilla & Gecko clones The ripples caused by Google's Eric Schmidt's words are spreading further and further throughout the internet. Asa Dotzler, Mozilla's director of community development, wrote on his blog, urging people to switch away from Google to Bing, which he claims has a better privacy policy. Dotzler points users to the Firefox Bing add-on.

Jup, those where the days ;)
Especially since you could simply ask "How to use a hammer?" and it would actually give a reasonable result.

Google still won't advertise to ask questions in plain english/dutch or whatever language.

I switched from altavista to google when altavista had a lot of ads and google just had a few ads on the side. Altavista started adding ads like "search-results"... Hm, sounds familiar? That's the moment I start hating any searchengine.

Time to start an open source searchengine? ;)

WOW... THAT LOOKS CLEAN TO ME!

The thing that pushed me from AltaVista to Google was that while AltaVista just maintained a FAQ entry explaining why it's impossible to show the search terms in context, Google was actually doing it.
