Create your own search engine! Make it personal, funny, interesting. I recommend using either x-ray goggles, or firebug through firefox. The downside of using firebug is that it is more difficult to use, easier to loose your work, and you have to download firefox and firebug. So I strongly recommend using X-ray goggles. You simply drag it into your bookmarks and start editing. When you are finished click publish, and copy the url that it generates for you.

House of Noir Search Engine (2 pts.)

Here is a search engine that Janelle created for the House of Noir group, which incorporated the font of the classic film series “The Godfather.” The choice of this font reflects how the House of Noir is full of suspenseful twists and turns; we like to think that we lead …
