Google's Censorship, Now As Blatant as Can Be

Remeber the quaint old days when we would complain that an article critical of Google wouldn’t be on the front page despite trending everywhere else? Or further back, when we saw that the results for Firefox extensions were  placed below the results for Chrome in Firefox, but also, strangely enough the other way around as well?

Well, now this censorship is in full swing. Search Google for “ublock origin”, the excellent plugin that I strongly recommend. In Firefox, you get results for Chrome, then Opera, then Edge, and some articles about it, but if you want the firefox plugin, now you have to explicitly search for “ublock origin firefox”.

Whatever happened to don’t be evil?
