Hmm, that is interesting.

A search for "dog" displays the following max results:

Safari/Firefox: "about 276,000,000"
          Lynx: "about 419,000,000"

When I set Lynx's user agent to Safari's, I get 276,000,000. So it looks like Google is giving different results based on user agent.

I wonder what's hidden in the extra 143 million results?
