Day 13 | Explore the internet | Search everywhere

If you use the internet regularly, chances are, you will be searching for information using either Google, Yahoo!, Bing or ASK. Google is by far the most widely used internet search engine all over the world. This also means that these search engines are effectively the primary gate keepers of content we find online. Iit's worth reminding ourselves that we don't have to be limited to the gatekeepers we are used to all the time.

Chart a different journey into the world wide web.
