Google Inc., owner of the world’s most popular search engine, plans to wind down the website where it let users explore early product prototypes to help better prioritize development of new services.
Google Inc. is turning to its roots as a Web startup to confront threats from a new generation of Internet companies, led by Facebook Inc.
Google Inc. said it changed the way the company carries out Web searches to feature more “high- quality” sites, following criticism that its results favored information of little value to users.
"Nothing in the decision is a serious blow to any of Google's ambitions."
