About Search.eazel.com:

Search.eazel.com assumes Google style, and tries to appear like a legitimate search engine so as to give users a feeling of safety to avoid being under suspicion. Though search.eazel.com appears like google.com, it actually has nothing to do with this world’s most widely used search provider.
