    Anyone else experiencing this? Lately, when doing a search on google, the little "connecting" wheel at the top of the screen spins endlessly, and it takes quite a long time to get a google response. Doesn't seem to happen with any other major website - just google.

    I've noticed this over the last few days as well. Every other site I browse works fine, but google searches are intermittently taking 20-30 seconds to return a query.

    I wish that the search results on Google were better.

    They supply more ads than any other search site.

    I have also used something called duckduckgo (especially when I don't want to be tracked by google); I must admit, though, that google advanced search returns more of the informative sites I might be looking for than duckduck.
