Google search has changed a lot since its launch in 1998, and particularly in the last couple of years. What used to be a simple tool that helped us find useful websites is now packed with ads, product suggestions and, increasingly, AI-generated content.

This last addition is proving to be the most controversial. Google has already added AI summaries to search results in the US and plans to roll them out internationally. The problem is that the summaries are often garbage. They can contain information that’s plagiarised, incorrect or both, and you have to scroll all the way past them to find the web results you were looking for. In our own recent survey, 79.24% per cent of respondents said they don’t find Google’s AI summaries useful. Fortunately, it turns out there is a solution (no, it doesn’t also bring back the old Google logo).
