On May 21, a website called Google-CH attracted attention on Weibo. This website, which has the domain name www.google-ch.com, is not only very convenient to open, but also the search results are consistent with Google search. For a while, some people even thought this was Google’s domestic search project called Google-CH.
What is Google-CH?
Already in Baidu's "hundreds" search, we certainly cannot believe such websites, at least google-ch.com's domain name is doubtful. As it turns out, the Google-CH website clearly stated that the Google-CH project was created by Google Fans to enable domestic users to use Google’s services.
The site profile also expressly states that: It has nothing to do with U.S. Google.
After these statements, Google-CH can provide us with the same search results as the official Google search, with no ads. We compared Google-CH and Google’s search results and found that, apart from advertising, the others are consistent.
For example, search for pneumonia on Google. The first two are pneumonia-related advertisements that are delivered to Google. The third article after the advertisement is the Wikipedia entry for pneumonia. The fourth entry is the Baidu Encyclopedia entry. These two terms are directly in the top two in Google-CH without ads.
If you visit Google-CH with Android or iPhone, this website will also prompt you: This is a website that supports PWA. Since PWA is similar to a WeChat applet, you can even add Google-CH to your desktop just like a native Android application.

With the support of the Android system, the PWA experience is very close to the Android native APP experience. In what we once introducedCasesThe completion of the Weibo PWA version is already high, and it also brings normal timelines without the benefits of advertising.
Without changing the search results and supporting PWA, Google-CH developers can be said to be loyal Google fans. Not only do Chinese users use Google Search for this tortuous way, they also use Google to promote development on the mobile terminal. The latest technology (PWA) used.
More interestingly, Google-CH promised in the website introduction: Google-CH will conduct keyword filtering according to the national conditions in China to adapt to local laws and regulations. In our search tests, Google-CH is a blank search result for searches involving the names of national leaders. “Survive desire” Strong.
Google search “return to China”? nonexistent.
This is not the first time that we have created the illusion that Google will return to China. Every time there is a little trick, whether it is the official or Google-CH folk behavior, we will not consciously go back to China's "back to China." Directions Lenovo.
The most imaginative thing that happened last time occurred when Google Translate was able to visit China. Although it is just a translation tool, it is hard to avoid guessing: This is Google's "return to China" prelude?
Of course, it turns out that these are non-existent. We just have a more useful translation tool. There is only one more mirror website built by the fans themselves. And the bigger action we are looking for is just the mirror. Flower, water in the month & rdquo;.
If you are Google fans, you still have to face this embarrassment for a long time. I used Google's shoulder bag to eat with my colleagues. When I entered an "Internet restaurant" near the company, other colleagues smiled behind me. I still don’t know what’s going on. I didn’t realize that after my colleagues posted photos of friends, Google’s contrast with Internet restaurants was quite strong.
My colleague named this circle of friends: 404 and walked into the Internet restaurant.
Android without Google is incomplete.
Google left too long and we look forward to Google. This is not just because Baidu’s public image is getting worse, so that the departure of Baidu COO Lu Qi has caused a collective sentiment among Chinese Internet users, but also because Android has a market share of over 80%.
China's Android does not have a unified app store, and there is no review on the APP. The result is that rogue software is rampant, APPs wake up from each other, an APP is opened, and the same SDK's "Home Barrels" are all active in the Android background. stand up. The lack of Android system-level push makes it almost impossible for the user to lock the background without receiving message push. For example, the commonly used WeChat microblog, the first thing I get every time I get an Android phone is to lock the background of WeChat to avoid missing WeChat messages. Notice. As for other email notifications, microblog posts, and instant APP subscriptions, I have never had any luxury on Android phones.
Android without Google is incomplete. The day when you want to have a full Android experience is not too far away.
