Google makes some changes


Recommended Posts

I just wish they would stop messing about with their search page.

Fat chance of that... Lucky U!


I also get the prompt to make Google my default browser upon visiting with a browser if I do not have it set as default.

Very annoying...


But I found a way around that. Make that more than one.

Set your default homepage to either:


- http://go.infinise.com/

- http://www.google.com/firefox


By using a webpage that uses Google search, that isn't the actual main Google search, u avoid that nasty prompt to add it as default!

(And also maybe they will stop changing their search page, since these sites use Google Search, but aren't the main Google Search page.)

At least they're buckling down and actually focusing on a product that has a chance (G+)


I doubt it. I think it's just going to be a mostly useless thing, mainly exploited by SEOs. Facebook "likes" are no better, but I don't think Google Plus will prove to be much competition.


Also, if they are serious about Google Plus, they better get the code that they provide on their website to add the plus button to be W3C Compliant.

The +1 button augments their search function and android market too. G+ can be better, but they're sure taking their time making it so. One thing I like is that it uses canvas for the circles feature (and I like when people dont use flash), but canvas seems to stutter when interacting with large numbers of contacts.

My homepage is about:blank.


That's mine as well, I've used that for what now 10 years or so in my main browser. However for IE which will never be my main browser I have an HTML file I made that links to Microsoft Update, Microsoft Download Center, and Dell Support/Updates, since that's all I'll ever use IE for - unless of course a website I already trust isn't working correctly in Firefox.
