Amazon Switches from Google to A9

Amazon now using Google A9

Amazon has switched it's search from Google to A9. Not really sure if that will make much difference to you or me, but if you like the color brown it is surely a good thing.

The Register also noted that sometimes Amazon's related products may not be related to what you are searching for.

When I perform a search it says
'Search results enhanced by Google. Results also provided by, Alexa, and'

Maybe it depends on what type of search you are performing.
