Have our worst fears been realized? Google.com isn’t loading in Shanghai currently. It works fine using a proxy server. Google.cn is loading, but it is slow and its results are crap. Let’s hope this is just a hiccup and not a full-on heart attack. This is not cool.
UPDATE: Curiously, Google News loads fine.
UPDATE II: Google.com started loading again sometime in the middle of the morning. All is right with the world.
Also on Shanghaiist:
We still like Google (you should, too)
Google News unblocked in China?
