    I can't wait for Google to inevitably start deciding which pages they deem good based on their politics and ideologies, rather than technical aspects. I guess this is a pretty good time to boycott them again over crap they're trying to pull off.

    Yes. Firefox sends the URLs to Mozilla though.

    If you go to a website through Google search, yes, yes they know. This is far from news.

    Also this happens already with Google Safe Browsing as said by others

    That said, I'm pretty sure that they are just finding ways to show people what their site indexing AI algorithms think when they index the website. Running an AI application scan real-time is not really istantaneous, even for Google.

    Google, just like any other Internet search engine, is always running indexing bots that scan the Internet to see and categorize all websites.

    Like: This is the 34th kitten video you are watching today, don't you have anything better to do? Or: You are at your work computer. You are not watching the GoT prequel trailer at work, right?
    Decent business firewalls do that already.

    Higher-than-average businness setups even compromise HTTPS website access from the internal network by doing a Man-in-the-middle with their own proxy for the sake of controlling what their employees do. It's called HTTPS Proxy content inspection. https://www.watchguard.com/help/docs..._resign_c.html

    Bigger issue is that these things do require a professional to set up and maintain properly, and of course an expensive businness firewall appliance.

    Maybe require a Google account to use Chrome and registering your employers and your significant other's email when creating the account, so with their help Google can get you back on the right track to correct content consumption. So many possibilities...
    Would be a good addition to their "Gsuite for work" features yes. No need to have a proper businness firewall to control your employee internet access, just force the use of Chrome locked down for businness and rely on us to create the whitelists and blacklists.

    How about looking at their own crap (spyware, ads) that slows down the internet and start working on that ?

    Our long-term goal is to define badging for high-quality experiences, which may include signals beyond just speed.

    That sounds like real progress. It could certainly boost the productivity and reduce wasted time for everyone. Maybe require a Google account to use Chrome and registering your employers and your significant other's email when creating the account, so with their help Google can get you back on the right track to correct content consumption.

    The direct quote means "In the future we are going to use other parameters too to define if the web site is good or not".

    And I'm already sure this will be used in their google search results rating score eventually, like they are using the https support and other webpage parameters.

    That's not censorship, it will just favor the better site if many exist, if only a few exist (like say 5 or 6) it won't matter much, it will all appear on the first page of results


    If we want to talk about censorship, we can talk of the personalized search result system. That's very bad on so many levels.

    I wonder why would Google bother calling out its own websites for being slow. I mean it's not like we didn't notice...
