Google heading back to China?
The Intercept reported that Google is planning to build a censored search engine for the Chinese market, based on a leaked document. According to the article, the project, code-named Dragonfly, has been active since 2017 and recently accelerated after a meeting between Google CEO Sundar Pichai and a “top Chinese official.” Google shut down its search engine in China in 2010 due to the country's censorship policy, but now it appears that it wants back in. It is important to note that numerous companies have wasted time and cash trying to break into China’s massive market. Most recently, Facebook seemed to have finally made it behind the steel curtain until China slammed the door shut at the last minute, again.
