TRUST NO ONE ... especially Google ...

That's right! Google is a slippery, slimy customer but it's no match for a bronze titan!

I caught them (yes, the whole co-operative of evil!) in their nefarious deed while looking up a webpage for the Computer Chronicles: 35th Anniversary Edition project. Reviewing the OldSchoolLaw - List Of Computer Chronicles Shows, I clicked on the link to a Google cache . .

Up popped this Google cache webpage . .

Also immediately, it was gone and replaced by this . .

I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine and web.archive.org for archives.

Interesting ... [tries again] ... Ah! Google are villains. When not trusted (my default), it follows as I described. When trusted (I assume your default?), it follows as you described. See? Sly villains*.

How are DDG's search results? I mostly use StartPage because of their privacy design/policy and they do fairly well. However, when I'm digging deep, it doesn't match Google. See? Still sly villains*.

StartPage is still Google, just with personal data stripped.
DuckDuckGo respects your privacy, but is its own thing. I like it better because they don't demote/remove results that Google gets notices to remove or doesn't fit their world view.
