What’s is the best search engine? – Some more Google gags…

Almost everybody knew about Google bombs, like if we search for "miserable failure", Google will brought up the official George W. Bush biography page to number 1 position among other all results.


Though at present many of these so called bombs are not available in search results.

I just thought to explore some more in this bombing aspect and all of a sudden decided to search for query “best search engine“ using Google search.

Guess what I got in the results…


As you can see Google Search isn’t visible in the results page, except something mentioning “Best US Shopping Search Engine Winner: Google's Froogle” and “” appeared in the top of all results.

Seeing these search results motivated me to search some more queries related to “best search engine”.

Look what I found….

Search Query “top search engine”

Top serch engine

Once again “” appeared in top 3 and still no mention of “”. Though two websites got the term Google.

Search Query “web search”


At last in this query “” was visible, though in the 10th position…….

Once again “” was in the top.

Search Query “online search”


In this query AOL Search is the topper. I think that’s because AOL was formerly called America Online, Inc. and Google thinks it is what I am after.

In the end the tagline I got is “Google is too shy to show himself as best search engine in its own search results”.

I got these results because Google generally don’t manually modify it’s search results [visibility of a site in search results depend on their pagerank and some other criteria defined by Google].

So I hope I got something new similar to Google Bombs…….

Google Gags may be….

You may also try some more queries like “ultimate search engine”, “search engine”, “top 10 search engines” etc.

EyeDefender – avoid eyestrain and prevent Computer Vision Syndrome

EyeDefender is a freeware which can protect your eyes from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).

CVS is a temporary condition resulting from focusing the eyes on a computer display for protracted, uninterrupted periods of time. Symptoms of CVS include headaches, blurred vision, neck pain, fatigue, eye strain, dry, irritated eyes and difficulty refocusing the eyes. These symptoms can be further aggravated by improper lighting conditions (i.e. bright overhead lighting or glare) or air moving past the eyes (e.g. overhead vents, direct air from a fan).

“EyeDefender can also help you prevent other problems related to computer use, which require a computer user to take short breaks. These problems include Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) or Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS), also known in the USA as Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and in Europe - Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD).”

EyeDefender runs automatically in the system tray and guides a computer user to take a break, when it’s really needed to protect your eyes from CVS.

I think EyeDefender is very useful software because nowadays many hardcore computer users (including me) often face these problems, though EyeDefender is only available for Windows based PCs.

BitThief is a BitTorrent client developed by Distributed Computing Group at ETH Zurich, it offers torrent downloads without uploading (seeding). Its simply cheats the BitTorrent protocol, allowing it's users to download like a selfish giant. You may get better download speed with BitThief on well seeded torrents and slow internet connection (you will be able to use your full bandwidth for download), though just imagine if everybody starts using BitThief then the torrent itself will be dead.

BitThief poses a great threat to BitTorrent Peer 2 Peer (P2P) file sharing and can be considered as a torrent leeching client software. The point raised by the developers of BitThief is “We argue that the BitTorrent protocol has to be modified in order to effectively prevent selfishness.”

BitTyrant another torrent client similar to BitThief, though BitTyrant do seed, but only to the peers having high upload speeds.
