Odd. I never do and it works for me.

If Google goes down we all go down. Google controls the World.
When I do a Google search and the little throbber in Firefox stops turning just for a split second I feel dizzy because the World stops turning just for that split second.

No, I aint got a clue what I'm waffling on about either, but it should keep the conspiracy theorists awake for another couple of minutes.

I love the skynet image!
Seriously though, has google EVER been down? Something tells me they have a backup for their backup for their backup. There's just too much money at stake!

I don't think that google have been ever totally down, however I remember a serious bug that affected google some years ago: all websites were marked as suspecious (you get a big warning instead of the url when you click on the link), this was corrected 20 minutes later, but the traffic on many big websites was seriously affected, now imagine if google would be totally down for a day

I have known google to be so busy it seems down/time's out.

If you get no response from a site try
http://isup.me
This is a short URL for the above.

If no URL's work, test if your DNS service is down.
By keeping Google's IP in your bookmark's, currently it's
http://74.125.224.72/

Personally I use
OpenDNS for my DNS and DuckDuckGo for my search engine

I am using google web fonts for all my websites since fontsquirrel limited the number of fonts you can upload for conversion and removed EOT compressed, and for that half-hour that I couldn't access google, I couldn't access any of my sites either. Indeed they are the web...
