Another Altruistic Redesign | August 27, 2003

Paul Scrivens has created a standards compliant version of Google and ponders the pros and cons of this famous search engine converting to web standards.

Erik Bator worked on this design and talks briefly about the reasons alltheweb chose to use CSS and web standards.
