Google is 20, Chrome is 10, and Microsoft would rather ignore the Nokia deal's 5th birthday

The Old Portal Fantasy

"refreshingly uncluttered Google front page." Still works better. But I keep seeing portal-like ideas being floated, the concept has a hypnotic effect on people with a lot of money to invest.

I use Startpage mostly, and Duck Duck Go, but Google pioneered the search engine that just searches. One big plus with Startpage is that it does not warp the search by referencing previous searches.
