    I'll wait patiently. There are simply no better search engines than Google or Bing and I'm not quite ready to move over to Bing yet, I *love* the simple Scroogle page.

    Great news , thanks.
    Let us hope that Scroogle will be able to continue working despites Googles attempt to sabotage their efforts.

    Yey!

    I don't think it has anything to do with sabotaging Scroogle, more likely just Google changing things.

    Not if you have read some of Scroogles comments on their problems over time....

    Great that it's up again but the end is nigh.
    Scroogle founder Daniel Brandt, in a reaction to The Register;

    "I have to tolerate more bloat, and there are occasional screw-ups in the parsing...But it is usable," Brandt tells us. "Google's coding gets more complex as the files get more bloated. I'm not sure it's worth trying to clean up what I'm showing now, because I have little faith that Scroogle can last much longer." (link) :(

    I read that too but on more than one occasion Scroogle has also complained on their own website that they suspected Google to do a lot of what they did to stop Scroogles activities...

    Anyway, sorry I have to log off now, have to get up really early in the morning to go to the hospital. So happy "Wilders Security Forums" "clubbing" (in "Wilders Security Forums" club).;)

    If it does ever come I'll be fine with Bing, or maybe a Scring? :D

    I have doubts it'll last through too many more changes. Though I don't think Google is specifically doing anything against Scroogle (come on guys, be realistic, is Scroogle even remotely a threat to/problem for Google? Out of millions who search Google per day, how many even know Scroogle exist?), eventually I'd get tired of fixing my site as well. It's just going to be a never-ending back and forth, at some point it just isn't worth it, imho.

    If Scroogle ever goes down for good, I like "Duck Duck Go." They don't log IP's and they have an SSL option.
