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.

For this assignment I decided to create my own search engine. I used the X-Ray Goggles and remade the Google page. It was pretty complicated because I could not for the life of me figure out how to change the Google logo, so now it’s a dingy little button. …
