Google Taking over the Web?

Is it just me or did everyone notice that whenever we open a webpage that is either non-existant or whose server is down, we no longer get a ‘cannot find server’ error! Instead we’re directed to the Google Search Page 👿

I first noticed this when I tried to open YouTube  earlier today and when after trying for a few seconds, the browser redirected me to I presumed that since Google’s takeover of YouTube, the site was down for maintenance and URL redirection led me to the search page! But later in the day, I faced the same errant behaviour with a few Music download sites such as 4IndianMusic and ChannelOK and airline site of Paramount and SpiceJet! I also assumed that it might have to do with my Firefox extension of CustomizeGoogle but even on disabling it, I ended up at Google search page! Wonder what the hell is happening out there in the Wierd Wired World :mrgreen:
