    It’s the equivalent of doing a Google search and then clicking on the “Web” tab for results.

    Clicking on “Web” manually inserts the &udm=14 at the end of the search string. I believe udm is just classifying which type of search to run, and this is a basic “web search” with no gimmicks.

    &udm=14 is fancy for nerds who think they’re special but for anyone else it’s just clicking on “Web” results.

      I did not even know they separated out Web searches until I came to your comment. Super useful, thank you.

      A URL query is pretty damn low on things that make me feel like a fancy nerd. Add it by default to your browser’s search function so it applies to all searches automatically
