Disable auto-correction in Google searches.
This petition made change with 26 supporters!
Google has made us lazy. 43% of all typing performed while browsing the web involves the use of Google's search engine. The auto-correction feature allows users to make numerous typing mistakes while still being rewarded with correctly-interpreted search results. Auto-correction gives less incentive for the user to type correctly and carefully, thus over time making a user, by habit, less and less apt at typing. By boycotting the use of Google and its services, we can make a difference. We can take back our skills and aptitude. We can make ourselves less dependent on automated technology. We can learn to live in the moment. Boycott Google.
Feedback from our supporters:
"Bing is actually comparable now to Google. People don't realize it."
- Chark Moi, Petition Supporter (Name obfuscated to conceal identity)
"boyct goog.l. aallt=dawayyy"
- Henry Liu, Petition Supporter and Auto-Correct Victim
On the usefulness of Auto-Correct:
"...like when your searching for jobos beach and it gives you beach jobs instead?"
- Sara, Petition Supporter, Auto-Correct Victim
CASE IN POINT: One of our supporters, Leena Bui, had her OWN NAME incorrectly auto-corrected to "Lena," AS she was signing this very petition! We are starting to see even more negative results of Google's auto-correct feature. It is not just limited to search queries, but ANYTHING typed within the Google Chrome Browser. Please support our cause!
