'elgooG' Turns Internet Surfing Into a Mind-Bender

In case the average web-surfer has become way too clever in the art of search-engine domination, elgooG has come to their rescue. Everything, even the text-entry box, is set up backwards, requiring a search to be typed in reverse. The results also show up in mirror form, making them pretty difficult to decipher. Luckily, the actual website you want appears in good old-fashioned text. 

The site has even served as a way for Chinese netizens to trick The Great Firewall since it acts a cover in the initial search topic. As frustrating as it is to try to decipher, perhaps this may turn into a new online language, reminiscent of the infamous Pig Latin. Stats for Mirror Image Search Engines Trending: Older & Mild
