If you don't want people to see what you're searching for, then stop looking at porn.
there are other reasons to use https for images. there are other reasons to use https for the other features like the new book <which they pinched from amazon or redirected you to amazon dot com> search. mearcatingly just using https on images does not hide images from someone or someones that may be in the room with you.

kryptkat, your complaint seems to be a generic one against large business. Nothing Google does uniquely.
agreed. there should have been a list of websites accessible when ip was created. <not dns>Quote:
web searching should have been developed right from the beginning
you pull up the page and all the website locations list comes up. with no sites content controlled or banned or parked. unlike dns where you have to proved a name to fetch a new service to proved a list to choose from as well as scan for.

Aren't you talking about web directories?Quote:

An exhaustive list would be big and annoying and constantly updated, but you can find what you need if that is the format you prefer.
They are still important. Particularly the Open Directory Project. Google and other search engines crawl these for new submissions and give them priority (on first crawl only). It also affects Google's PageRank.
was thinking more like a dialog box with a combo list box and buttons.
buttons that are a to z and 0 to 9. when pressed the combo list box would contain the web sites that begin with that letter or number. other buttons that would have category names and when pressed the combo list box would contain web sites with that category. check boxes that would allow you to turn on and off the web sites description. the description would open in another dialog box like the standard search engine. a check box for selecting open in a new window or tab.
the combo list box would allow you to scroll through all the sites and you could select one or more. if more were selected then they would each open in a new window or tab. if multiple web sites were selected in the combo list box then all of them that were selected would open. each in its own window or tab taking full advantage of broadband.
an edit box at the bottom that would allow for a standard search and open a new page in a new window or tab.
when you get down to the root of the whole discussion, isn't the page sorting algorithm the essence of the search engine? if the public were denied access to the algorithm, the whole system might as well be closed-source, making this whole exchange invalid.
simpy put, google is the most useful set of tools on the internet for the average user, and those who are opposed to their practices can choose to look elsewhere.
The two main problems with that kind of argument are: how long would it take for the system to reach equilibrium, if the page ranking algorithm were known, and why would Google let such an important piece of search go, if it is so easy to reach such a bad conclusion? Forget about how valuable Page Rank is. Google releasing it publicly just makes them look like a bunch of clueless dicks for breaking the Internet like that.
No. The only demonstrable evidence we have of this goes back to Altavista and Yahoo and the early days of Google link lists exploits in which it was possible for everyone to abuse search engines algorithms and artifically control placement, turning the web upside down, with more relevant results often hidden below a list of useless spammy crap.Quote:
don't you think that if EVERYONE had the ability to do it, it would render the point rather moot?
So the evidence points the other way around. On this case, knowing, opens up pandora's box.
