It's so annoying that in order to justify their insanely high salaries, the idiots Google has been hiring like crazy started futzing with what used to be the best search engine around. First, Google Search went to the dogs. The way the page is structured now is simply stupid. The lame search term suggestions the system is trying to give me are beyond useless. All they do is get in the way of my searches. The new Google Search keeps trying to give me stuff I really really don't need, which is very frustrating in urgent searches.
As if that weren't enough, now Google has gone and destroyed Google Images. Now, the page with the search results is horribly cluttered. It's next to impossible to understand what the images are or where they are from. Besides, I have still found no way to place these images into my PowerPoint presentations. (If anybody has found their way around this new bit of Google insanity, please tell me how you do it.) I also have no idea how any of the images can be printed out. Which makes the entire Google Images system completely useless. My students have an assignment to bring pictures of certain type of artwork to class, and now I have no idea how they will manage to do that.
What I don't understand is what's the point of messing with a search engine that managed to become world-famous in its original format? Why destroy such a great thing? To make the competitors happy, or what?
Google used to be the homepage on all my computers but obviously not any more. I hope somebody comes up with a normal, simple, clear-cut search engine and takes all of the millions of people dissatisfied with the new Google away from these losers.
