Let me REALLY Google that for you!
A version of LMGTFY, without ads or trackers, and that ACTUALLY uses Google (and other search engines)!
I used to love
pissing people off teaching people by using LMGTFY, but they began pushing their "own" search engine instead of Google, then preventing you overriding this with
&ovr=1 in the URL.
I made this as a solution to this.
The URL format tries to be as simple as possible, and matches the original LMGTFY syntax when using simplified. We default to Google, so if you're cool with that, you don't need to add the
https://lmrgtfy.davwheat.dev/?q=<search query>&se=<search engine ID>
The query should be any URL encoded string. Escape special characters using their standard
% escape methods.
// Examples "hello there" => "hello%20there" "Howdy! How are you?" => "Howdy!%20How%20are%20you?"
If you want to easily find the URI encoded version of a string, open your browser's DevTools, switch to the Console tab and enter
Search engine ID
Below are the currently supported search engines. I plan to add more in the future.
