Is there any way to make a Google search case-sensitive?

Someone else has designed a website to do just that

To solve this problem and help you conduct case sensitive searches on Google, someone has created a Google Appengine powered search engine at Case Sensitive Search – it scans through Google search results and filters out results that match the case of your search query.

Thanks, this is better than nothing. Although I could imagine that there could be false negatives (?) –  Peter Mortensen Jul 21 '10 at 21:55
    
Results not showing up when they should? Most likely - but as you say, better than nothing - probably only for when you really need a case sensitive query. –  tobeannounced Jul 21 '10 at 22:06
    
I'm apparently not understanding how to use this page. I type in my search but the results are cryptic: all I see are different letters of the alphabet (with links) along with "Cached" and another link. All the links have the same URL as the page that just loaded as a result of trying to search! –  Michael Mar 20 '13 at 16:43
    
Ok, apparently that means it didn't find anything. Can't filter more than 1024 entries, but there are 64 million results and I want case sensitivity because without it one of my search terms if VERY common. Most likely would have to search through millions of results to get the first hit. –  Michael Mar 20 '13 at 16:57

No, from "Google search basics: Basic search help":

Search is always case insensitive. A search for [ new york times ] is the same as a search for [ New York Times ].
