Alerts regarding Chinese censorship

The NYTimes reports on a new software feature waged in the dispute between Google and The China Government over censorship.

Each time a user does a search query that may be censored in China, Google has created an alert to notify the user. The update was announced within a corporate blog and was described as an user-experience improvement for searchers in mainland China. When a mainland user clicks on a result that is censored that user can be suddenly disconnected from Google without a warning or context.

Warning of censorship - in China searches

One example of a censored search in mainland China on Google occurs when you search for the word “Jiang” — a common surname in China, but also the name of former President Jiang Zemin.
