Hi out there,

it seems that the overal number of hits returnend upon a Google search
operation differs between
browsers (Lynx, IE, Firefox). Does anybdy know the reason for this?

I'd guess the request gets passed to different servers based on the user-agent header, and that affects the part of Google's server-farm
