Google adds ’about this result’ information in search

Google is adding a new menu item to search results in English in the US. This new ’About this result’ link will provide users with more information about the site they are about to visit, before they click on the actual link. For sites without a Wikipedia entry, Google will show when it first indexed the site and other data if it’s available.

If my plumber tries to advertise me his beliefs, I'll get a new plumber. Months ago, I abandoned willingly using Google for anything. They're evil. DuckDuckGo and ProtonMail are great.
