QoogLe Search Engine - silly Friday.... but maybe not!

Postby SinclairSociety » Fri Apr 12, 2019 5:42 pm

Don't even have my QL yet but already seeing QL in my daily life.

This google avatar for the day made me think QL. Not sure why.

The colors I suppose to some degree.

Maybe we should have our own search engine know it all and super spy on you version for Google.

We can call it QoogLe.

:twisted:

I prefer DuckDuckGo - one step removed from the corporate surveillance hellscape. Perhaps a QL variant could be called QuackQuackGo?

There is the Google Custom Search Engine on my site - it's meant to present QL-related search results.

When I first implemented it, there were more QL-related websites and it worked better then than it does now that there are fewer QL-related websites around. Probably worth a revisit to see if it can be made to work better nowadays.
