Google.vc is the Unofficial Google2/08/2006 02:38:00 AM
An anonymous web developer with a passion for Google has created this functional Google mockup at URL http://www.google.vc. The portal style page uses an OS X-like rollover toolbar for selecting Google subdomains (like Froogle and Local) which is quite a slick improvement on Google's current incomplete set of text links. Latest Zeitgeist queries are featured along with Google specific feeds from the Google Blog, Google Press Releases, and GOOG stock. Links to Gmail and Google News are also there. Seems like a fun but harmless way of enhancing your Google experience if you're too lazy to modify your personalized search homepage similarly. Some comments on Google Blogoscoped suggested that the site might be "malicious," but after examining the source and link outs I can see no sign of bad code, non-google.com domains, or affiliate links even. Have at it.
