    Just the localised one which kinda annoys me. Google Australia just doesn't search the right places. :eek:

    Thanks. I knew they couldn't be hidden, but didn't know another way to express it.

    They really need to update the logo for the Mac page.

    What the heck is so "special" about the Mac page that I would want to use it instead of the standard Google page?

    It has "mac" in the URL... :) That, obviously, makes it a better search engine.

    The Mac Google page only searches Apple-related pages.

    You'll notice that almost every one of those pages contains the word "apple" or "mac." You'll also notice that it doesn't pull up the main Microsoft page. It's obviously doing some sort of primitive filtering, but I don't know exactly what.

    It just seems like a weak excuse for a Mac-only search engine.

    I saw that earlier. They just don't seem to be fully nailed to their topic.
