Google Search is horrible now, My eyes are hurting?
 
Hello everyone,

I know this is not related to LINUX. But on all my computers, windows and LINUX, My google search has changed completely. and it is so horrible that it is hurting my eyes. I see this very annoying yellow crappy AD on the side of the links. I do not see the gray box anymore and no links, nothing nada. Definitely, not the same like before.

Is this a global virus trying to take over the world???

Anyone else experiencing this?

You mean this:

Well, I use DuckDuckGo, so it doesn't affect me.

That looks good too. I'll try it out in case it works better than Duck.

I have had Startpage set as the default in my browsers for years. I quite like it.

well there is a very big difference in how a google search page looks when No-Script and Ad Block Plus is on or off
