Google: Quietly removed search warning message in China

Posted on Jan 5 2013 - 6:47am by Huzoor Bux

Google’s search engine has a unsteadily history in China, from search results being censored to interim TurnsOff. The company’s most recent effort to serve mainland China with unfiltered search results met with an untimely end back in start of December, Google confirms — a warning previously told mainlanders when the search term they were using had met with issues (read: Chinese government intrusion causing lengthy connection times) for other users. GreatFire discovered that said msg no longer popped up when searching for various censored terms on Google Search in China, and while Google’s confirming that fact, it’s not clear what the exact reasoning is.
