I sat down to do some work around 9:15 EST tonight – fired up my little Dell laptop…
….waited for my Google homepage to load in Firefox…and wait a second….What is this? I open up IE7 and get the same thing.
If I do a search from my Google search box in either browser, all seems fine – search results load perfectly. If I click the logo (which doesn’t look like their logo at all) to go back home – I get the error.
So now I am left to wonder, Is Google – hacked? Down? Seriously?
Julian runs over to his oh so superior Mac…and it works fine.
How about the browser in my RSS reader – FeedDemon? Nope – same error. How about the HP laptop that we have in our Kitchen?
Google loads perfectly…??? Julian says to me:
“Its just your computer. Clearly your browser has been hijacked.”
Ummm, ok – IE7 AND Firefox AND FeedDemon – and ONLY the Google Homepage?
What is going on here? Once I cleared my cache and cookies – everything started to work fine. Now, I have to admit, I pride myself on being a girl with a large amount of geeky computer knowledge – but have no idea what just happened, and I feel a little stupid….Can anyone help tell me what’s up?
