This is fun, I can’t seem to find any recent problem like this on the
news today, the last one I heard of was in May 2005 :D. Still on the discussion list there are several users complaining about this problem.
I found this on a forum though
“sogo owns www.google.com.net, so when google has DNS problems some
browsers will try to append .com, .net, and .org to whatever url you
typed and redirect you there.”
But I bet it’s not unintentional…having a search engine in the net domain 😉
Here’s the original discussion:
Come on Google, buy www.google.com.net!
