Grumpy Website


Arghh!.. Nobody should be doing it, yet everybody does. You have perfectly fine product/feature and then you add unnecessary and superfluous functions to it.

Here is Google search as seen on Android 8 phone. Search is fine—it’s rest of the tabs that worry me.

Home? Home of what? My phone already has home screen, and if Google has different home, I certainly am not interested what’s in there.

Upcoming what? Searches? I’m aware Google knows everything but stuff I’m going to search in the future?

Recent searches? Come on, search is always an in-the-moment thing. Who cares for history? If anything, I can always just search again.

And then there is More! It includes Account switcher (Google might need that to spy on you, but I certainly don’t), Recent (yes, again), Saved (somebody saves searches, not results?), Reminders (come on, now Google Search is a todo list all of a sudden?), Customize (Favorite topics? Life’s too short for that), Settings (which is different from Customize) and Help/Feedback (I guess they have to be put somewhere).

Which of those do I care about? My freaking results! Nothing else. I don’t even care about their daily doodle here, my phone _already_ has Google Google Google written all over it.
