Internet users worldwide found themselves plunged into unexpected darkness as their Google queries returned with nothing.
The Google search outage had users panicked around the world as their search queries returned “internal server errors,” forcing them to use DuckDuckGo or (shudder) Bing – or take to social media to complain.
Rushing to Twitter to see who else was suffering in this 21st century dark age, they found temporary solace in the fact that they were not alone.
The outage appeared to be widespread, with no explanation available other than a promise that “engineers have been notified and are working to resolve the issue.”
As would-be Googler’s commiserated, the search engine came back to life for many, with in one hour none the wiser about how close they had come to extinction.
According to DownDetector, however, some users continued to have issues two hours after the first ominous reports.
