    Hi

    I've been thinking that for quite a while.
    It seemed that I used to be able to type in a search and get quickly to what I was looking for.

    Now I seem to come up with things that are totally unrelated.

    Sometimes I have to keep changing the order of the search criteria until something comes up that relates to what I'm looking for.

    It just doesn't seem to work as well.

    Too much stuff out there methinks or not good enough HTML headers at the beginning pages. Drunk spiders on the net ?

    Google has Instant search enabled so it will throw all kinds of crap in the way,
    Problem is you have to be signed into google to turn it off permanently
    And that really what google wants = you to be signed in all of the time

    I'm signed in gmail and gtalk all the time weather Google want's it or not, what's the problem ? Yes I see a lot of crap but no malware, can't see a way to get it that way.

    Do you mean "search suggestions" ?, I like that feature. You know what, I think we have different Google start pages because of location, I always get "Google.RS" instead of "Google.COM", here's what mine looks like:

    Google multi-term searches all too often returns crap results with the note "Missing: (what I want to include)" - wastes a lot of my time.
