  • Google - Froogle = Useful

    While searching for Challenge images I was reminded of one of my most common gripes about the web: you can't research anything without wading through thousands of sites trying to sell you want you're researching.

    But, now that Google has released, couldn't somebody make an interface that will return Google results only if they are not also listed on Froogle? Since Froogle is basically a list of the shopping sites listed on Google, it would greatly reduce the number of search hits and those you got would be a LOT more useful.

    Google has a published API for those interested in doing such things.

    Google is approaching useless

    New open source browser from google. Fast, low memory requirement, if a website crashes the browser, it only crashes the open tab, not all of them. It also has an "incognito" mode for anonymous browsing. And looks excellent in it.

    From time to time there have been posts on RP about searching the web and also questions about where to find information. Well I came across this beta search engine that is different in its approach. It is called "ZUULA". I like to think of its approach as "tab searching". ...

    i've been using PicLens for a week or so now and really like it. piclens is a browser add-on. it works with many of the popular browsers. it's a two part piece, really. one part is installed in your browser and allows you to view, in a special manner, web sites that have also embedded the code.
