I always referred to the earlier engine as "Infosuck" but damn, Google's getting bad. When I open Google News in Firefox on my tablet, I get a blank page unless I click "request desktop site" and then it still goes nuts. But then, it might be my crappy tablet that I'll probably write about.
The answer is Google broke Google. I've been getting served a misandrist site from there, Breitbart (famous for its fake news) and wingnut sites from both wings. Did Sergey retire or something?
