I Think I Broke Google

The url for the above image is actually http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&hs=3AX&q=computers&start=360&sa=N. It’s supposed to be the 36th page of the query “computers”. You can test it yourself and if you happen to hit the same shard/bug as me, you can see the oddity too. (Keep refreshing if you don’t, roughly 1 in every 20 from my highly scientific test!) It definitely happens more often the deeper you go in the result set .

Interesting notes:

  • Obviously, should be displaying more than 1 result.
  • Wikipedia link some how survives what ever bug I ran into.
  • 59.6 million results and only shows results 1-4.
  • Supposed to be page 36, some how I’m back on page one.

A funny but harmless bug.
