Google Inc. is giving Web surfers a few more ways to refine their search results, signaling its resolve to ward off rival Microsoft Corp.'s aggressive campaign to lure traffic.

The changes announced Thursday might be hard to notice because they require clicking on a "show options" link above Google's search results. The feature has been around since May, making it possible to focus the results exclusively on videos, discussion forums, reviews or books. Now news and blogs are joining the list of options.

Microsoft introduced similar features for limiting search results to specific categories as part of a June upgrade that renamed its search engine as Bing.

I am glad that someone has actually given Google some kind of competition to force them to improve. It is a shame that it had to be the devil itself. It would be nice to see a third person get in to this two horse race. But alas it seems that everything in internet breaks down into two different camps. everything Microsoft owns and everything Google owns.

Everyone should use neither.


Startpage.com is just as useful as either of those search engines, but never records your IP. There is even a number to connect to them securely so that even your ISP has a tougher time seeing what you're upto.

At the very least, every person who uses startpage gives mass marketers less ammunition against the masses.
