elgooG

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia, by MultiMedia


elgooG is a mirror image version of the Google search engine. The search page and all results are displayed in reverse. The site is called the "google mirror" as a parody of the term mirror in computing, which usually refers to a copy or backup of another website. The site was created by a group called All Too Flat, who put up various comedy and satire pages on their website.

On elgooG, all pages are displayed with the order of letters reversed, though the letters themselves are displayed normally. The images on the site are also reversed, and queries to the site must be entered backwards. The results are also displayed backwards, although the pages linked to are not run through any filters, and just display normally. The site also utilises right-to-left text input fields and scrollbars where available.

New Scientist Magazine reported in December 2002 that the site had become popular in China, where the authorities had prevented locals from accessing the normal Google web site, but had not filtered elgooG. Apparently large numbers of multilingual Chinese web-surfers had mastered operating their computers in mirror image, and could use this site to get around the Chinese firewall. As the page doesn't support Chinese coding, however, such users were restricted to pages in languages that use the Latin alphabet.
