Hello, Mario,

> Why is there a Google search box on the W3C home page?

You might find this thread [1] will answer your question. It's been asked
before. I think Google's service has served us well (and is certainly better
than no search). Also, W3C is a vendor-neutral organization but including
search boxes from every search engine would simply take up too much screen
real estate.
