    Great (fire)Wall of China broken...

    According to this article the Great Firewall of China has been overcome and Google is viewable again. How? A mirror with a twist...it's a mirrored mirror called elgooG, of all things. Looks like in China's case, trying to control internet content is like trying to nail Jell-o to a tree.

    by god thats amazing! But i wonder .... if you enter the text backwards


    The text terms used for searches are also entered in reverse. The site, which returns all the same hits as Google, can be accessed from behind China's "great firewall".



    do u READ it backwards?

    In a word....no. After you access the site, it works just like Google with the exception of typing your searches backwards. It's just a mirror site with Google spelled like it is in a mirror...elgooG, hence the term a mirrored mirror
