AdvantagesFast

DisadvantagesGetting too big for its boots

""The google Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Google begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th.

The most reliable and dynamic search engine !

AdvantagesThe largest index of the web !

Disadvantages!!!NONE!!!

"Google ******* To learn about Google, first you must know the basic principles of a search engine. Basically what a search engine does is keep a large index of the web. All sites submitted to a search engine are indexed; also the search engine might use a thing called (Spiders). Spiders crawl the web looking for new pages; they are then all sent back to the main frame of the search engine and are recorded. Using a Search engine (i.e. Google) ***************************** ..." Read review

The best of the best!

AdvantagesBrilliant search engine

DisadvantagesNone that I can think of

"...to be American! Therefore Google.com was launched! However, realising that of course there are many people around the world who require a search engine (preferably in their native language and not producing results for American websites) Google have extended their websites so that they now have many different domains (web addresses) from countries such as France, Germany, Malta and many others all being written in the relevant native language. I believe ..." Read review

Google Secrets Revealed! Kind of...

AdvantagesQuick loading, easy to use, Simple layout, Lots of features

DisadvantagesSearch results aren't always what you're after and requires digging around

"Google is the world's most popular search engine. A search engine is a program or a coordinated set of programs that crawls the web to find documents that matches keywords and then returns the matches in a list. Basically, it's the thingy you use to search for stuff on the Internet. There are loads about such as MSN, Yahoo, Ask but Google has dominated the rest and has become the most popular. Although the category is Google.com, I'm usually directed ..." Read review

Google the Google search engine.

AdvantagesSee text.

DisadvantagesSee text.

"I would just like to write a review on google.com, although for the purposes of this review I am actually in fact basing it more on google.co.uk (although there is not really anything much of a difference between the two of them!). This is a website that comes under the term of 'search engine', and there are many of these search engines in existence that are all very good in their own ways (or not so as you may think on them!). When I say a search ..." Read review

Google, the cyber hero!

AdvantagesEasy, simple, fast, accurate

Disadvantagescouldn't find any yet

"Mos t of us use Google but have you ever thought what makes it diffirent? What it offers? I know very little of us know about the secrets of Google because most of you are as lazy as I am. Google is not just a search engine, but it has been providing some other valuable services. In other words, it has brought all the useful stuff of the net to a single pont. Although many other search engines provide the same services but Google is popular among ..." Read review

Search not in vain, for Google is here

AdvantagesFast, Comprehensive covers most of the net

DisadvantagesNone really, non grouping of sites is a minor one, but.... by searching by type or by extending your search this isn't a problem

"When I first got into the internet I seemed to believe that the only way to find new sites was by looking on Yahoo. After a while I thought that Yahoo may not be the best after all, especially when I heard people refering to Google; hundreds upon hundreds of hits within a matter of seconds (often less). Surely not I thought, I thought wrong; very wrong indeed! Pros for using Google ===================== ~Extremely fast - you won't be waiting ..." Read review

Google... a brief Guide...

Advantagesgreat search facilities, fast and easy to use, simple interface

Disadvantagesnone

"At a quick glance Google.com doesn’t seem to be a very advanced search system to be using. It doesn’t have a cluttered home page (unlike other search engines such a Altavista), infact it seems to be lacking, there are only a few things that you can do from the home page. I like this, the interface is very friendly and inviting and not too confusing. Having used Google for some time you also find out that there are many other things that ..." Read review

AdvantagesQuick, clean and efficient

DisadvantagesNone found.

"I’d like to introduce you to a friend of mine. Ciao, this is Google. Google, this is Ciao. You two have a lot in common, so I’m sure you’ll get on very well. I have to say, sad though it may seem to you sane types, that Google does have a place in my heart. It’s my homepage, and it’s the first place I call on when I need some help or advice. It’s also my daughter Emma’s first choice of helper with the odd ..." Read review

Let's Google it

AdvantagesEasy to use search engine, many features

Disadvantagessome search results are not relavant

"Google is my favourite search engine. Whatever computer and web browser I use, I always set Google as my web home page. I would not say it is perfect, but so far I think it is better than others. Google can be accessed from www.google.com or www.google.co.uk for UK specified. The following are some main features I used. ===Search Engine=== This is the essence and origin of Google. The search engine runs very fast and gives a vast amount ..." Read review

Something you did not know about Google

AdvantagesFast, Hihgly relevant results, amazing features

DisadvantagesModerate Safe Search filter..hee hee

"One thing that has increased popularity of the INTERNET are search engines. I shudder to think of world w/o search engines. Just Imagine! Uhhhh! Billions of pages, some useful, some not, so many images, so much of information. I wish the NET could have developed when I was a school kid. It's so easy now.

Another very good thing indeed

AdvantagesPowerful and effective

DisadvantagesNone

"When I first happened along the Internet some three or four years ago, the most popular search engine was probably Alta Vista. I say probably because it was one of the first, although it didn't have that much of an advantage over a hundred and one other such programs. Then something happened, and Alta Vista lost the plot. It was not that the AV offering went down hill much, it's just that they failed to capitalise on what market and product advantages ..." Read review

Simplicity Rules

Advantagesfast, customisable, everything

Disadvantagesadverts but they are clearly marked

"Google Google (google.com) is one of the best search engines on the web. It is just like any other search engine at first sight but it is vastly superior to any one I have ever seen. Advantages - Fast It is lightning fast, in only a few seconds, it can scan through millions of web pages. I tested this by searching for ciao and it took under 5 seconds to display results. This is taken for granted nowadays, however, just think of it, ..." Read review

AdvantagesFast, quick and very efficient search engine

DisadvantagesSome concerns about the potential erosion of people's civil liberties

"~ ~ Do the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when somebody is watching or talking about you without your knowledge?

Well, with the advent of the information age, when just about anything you ever wanted information about is quite literally at your fingertips via your home computer and the good old World Wide Web, then the chances are high that somebody, ..."

Just what I always wanted

AdvantagesIts just great

DisadvantagesWaddayamean? Disadvantages? This is Google we're talking about here!

"Yes, I know, it's tough to believe that the best search engine in the history of the world ever could get better, but it just did. Mr Google is soooooo clever (I wonder if he's single). If you haven't used Google before . . . what am I saying . . . of course you've used Google before. In case you've just beamed in from another planet...no, if your planet has the technology to beam you, it probably found it on Google. OK, just because, here's a ..." Read review
