Google: literally pays $15B to be the default search engine

Some folks: it’s not that bad, you can change it to a different search engine

Which part of that DEFAULT is worth FIFTEEN BILLION DOLLARS specifically because most people will not change it did you not understand exactly?

Defaults matter, people.

Defaults bloody matter.

@aral lack of sensible defaults is imo the biggest reason programming languages and frameworks, tools fail so yeah absolutely agreed

To be honest, most other search engines suck monkey balls, so they shouldn't be paying anyway 😀. All obvious other reasons for not using it aside of course

@sexybiggetje sadly, you are right. but there is still a solution provide you the good search results from google, but do not track you


@aral people who say "i just change it" probably don't care about others

@aral Never knew I could be worth so much. Thank you Google :)
