Google Tells You Your IP Now, Bye One-Stop IP Sites

 

Google will now tell you your IP address if you just ask it. Go ahead, give it a shot. This adds yet another piece of information Google will give you straight up instead of making you go all the way to a single serving website. Gone are the days of going to IP Chicken so you can tell your friends how to connect to your Counter-Strike 1.6 server, although I guess those days are gone for more than just this reason. There are dozens of “what is my IP address” sites though, and now Google is undercutting them all. Will they survive? Does anyone care? Who knows.┬áIf I ever need my IP I’ll probably go back to IP Chicken anyway. It has chicken in the name. Tee Hee.
