Windows 7: UK Searches

UK Searches

The Internet and especially Google is really getting me angry.
I try to look for information about British area codes, user manuals for equipment or whatever and I find the first few pages from organisations who are trying to sell me something rather than answering my question. Google obviously needs to make a profit but is it time for a "new" opensource wen searcher?

Well I'm afraid that is something we will have to live with. If they don't make money their will be no Google search engine along with many others.

The first three or four on the page are "shaded a bit" for your eye to go to them. Just do as I do and skip them and you will be OK.
