The search engine with the greatest user share, by a large margin. The company that creates/maintains it also works on a wide variety of other products, including things like translators, the webmail provider Gmail, the interactive map Google Earth, the web browser Google Chrome (and an operating system of the same name), Android, the social networking hub Website/GooglePlus, TheAdvertisementServer, and one of their most successful products, Website/YouTube. [[http://www.google.com Find it here.]] It also has a mirror site called [[http://www.kidrex.org/ KidRex]], a {{bowdlerise}}d version of Google for kids. The only difference is that [=KidRex=] blacklists inappropriate sites. Wiki/TVTropes' search engine is also run by Google.

* DevelopersForesight: It's amazing what you can do in the search bar. Regarding the safe-for-kids Kidrex mirror site, if you try to search for something inappropriate (e.g. porn), it'll give you an image saying "Oops! Try again!" in place of where the results would be.
