Users will need to upgrade their browsers to see this, but a new website, "www .to.google," has recently appeared on the Internet. Providing a random list of search engines, this website is neither part of, nor does it belong to Google Inc. (Viewing and Upgrade instructions shown at the bottom of this press release).

, and with the freedom to invent Internet addresses they really want, people are turning to these dotWORLDS to express themselves.

It seems that more and more people are defining the term “to google” as a verb, meaning to look for something, rather than just the popular search engine. This change has led to some interesting exchanges in the war of words and dictionaries and more recently, with the launch of "www .to.google".

Simply put, "www .to.google" is a website that lists Search Engines (under a number of headings and in no particular order). Visitors to this website may not be inspired by its size, but nevertheless "www .to.google" is making waves.

This website, and other groundbreaking sites like it have suddenly appeared all over the web. They are made possible by the release of brand new domain names, now available though dotWORLDS registrars (http://www.dotworlds.net), and bring Internet users greater flexibility than ever before. For example if you want to be seen as more successful, you could try registering "www .extremely.rich". Want to be more attractive? Try securing "www .good.looking". Looking to become more famous? Then perhaps "www .pop.star" is still available. But enough of the hypothetical: today. If you want a list of search engines, you can already visit "www .to.google". (Viewing instructions shown at the bottom of this press release).

So, have there been complaints about "www .to.google"? Says dotWORLDS, “At this time nobody has contacted us with any issues - and that includes Google Inc themselves. In fact, we are currently in touch with Google Inc on a different matter requesting further removals of anonymous content from Google Inc's website. Therefore we think if there was a problem they would have already told us. Despite our estimations that Google Inc has now withdrawn over 1500 of the links we complained about, in the separate matter of this new website, they have not approached us at all."
