Started in 1998, Google search is the most used web search engine in the world. While Google makes hundreds of changes to its search algorithm each year, it has not made any major overall to its simple yet functional user interface.
With default settings, when you search for something using Google search, it shows a total number of 10 results (excluding advertisements) per page irrespective of the web browser and operating system you’re using. Though more often than not users find the information they are looking for by clicking one of the results appeared in the first 10 results, at times we need to move on to the second or third page to get the required information.
