a comment on the General Rambling Search Engines Should Die
5 years and 8 days ago
The kind of "search engine" model Google popularized is a bad idea, in my opinion. I'm glad DDG is providing an alternative, but I think it's stupid to use HTTP/Perl/other crap just to do small little computations (like conversions) which are inaccessible is ridiculous.
Make a native application (NOT CLIENT) which may use the Internet, but isn't primarily a web platform. Well, do that if..

So, this morning I completely switched over from Palemoon (an x64/optimized Firefox fork) to SWare Iron. Much nicer browser, and now I don't need to worry about being in the Google cage. :)
