Google’s ‘Web-Only’ Search: Back to Basics

Oh, the irony! Google’s groundbreaking new feature lets you perform a “web” search. Yes, you read that right—a web search on Google. They’re rolling it out and in tests on desktop, it looks like it might just be the most revolutionary change to their search engine since, well, ever.

This magical setting filters out all the extra clutter Google loves to pack into search results, leaving you with just links and text—how novel! It even blocks Google’s new AI Overviews. Groundbreaking, isn’t it?

You might be scratching your head and asking, “Isn’t every search a web search? Isn’t Google Search basically the web?” Well, yes, but now there’s a shiny new button for it. So, you know, progress.
