    Surfing the internet can be troubling for seniors. With this in mind, Cranky.com became a new search engine that is specifically designed with the elderly in mind. The results are shown in big text, it is very user friendly, and the page is less cluttered with things that would confuse and elderly person. Cranky.com also shows less results per page, and the results it shows are more tailored toward the elderly demographic (defined by Cranky.com as 50 or older).
