    Google Safe Search ?!?!

    Ok my homepage is google.com of course , so i open firefox and it takes me to http://www.google.com/xhtml Google Safe Search ? What is this? I do have google desktop search and gmail notifier installed ? does it have anything to do with those ?

    The results page looks gay lol

    http://www.google.com/xhtml?q=google...8&safe=medium&

    WHen i try google.com on IE it takes me to the normal google page, on Firefox on the other hand it takes me to the xhtml page...

    works fine for me on firefox .... I have never heard of the safe search option .. is your home page set to www.google.com.au? try clearing your cache and going to google.com

    it has nothing to do with google safe search - that is simply an option you can enable in google yo prevent seeing adult links etc when performing searches

    this line however from the page source gives a good hint as to what it is

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd">
    just looks like you got your homepage set as the google XHTML WAP site for wireless devices (such as cell phones)

    I just recently came across that in Mozilla. So I check it in IE and the regular google page came up. Refreshed a few times in Mozilla, and the mobile page still came up (and had me worried since I don't like its looks). I clicked around, and then decided to exit Mozilla and tried again and after that it worked normally.

    I guess I'm glad I'm not the only one who ran into this weird thing...I really didn't enjoy the new layout I saw
