Search with Google


Looking for images?
Not only is Google the search engine with the highest search quality, it is the most userfriendly engine too. Their results are the fastest in the web with response-times down to less than a second, and design and webresources are reduced to the necessary. How is this possible? It's a kind of search endgine optimization ;-)
The homepage has a payload of round about 10KBytes. But only at your first visit. If you visit the homepage the next time the Google-Logo will be fetched from your browser-cache and just the html-page with 1300 Bytes!!! has to be transferred to your browser. The same with the search result pages. Allthough they have to transport 10 search results the page remains small. Normally such a result-page has a weight of 14 KBytes, but due to modern compression techniques they are able to shrink the html-file to 4-5 KBytes. That's near the maximum!
