Google Universal Search and more.

Posted by silverstag on May 18, 2007

Ever got frustrated for having to search for different stuff at different places? Ever wondered why you need to search images, video, news, maps, web and all using different search tools? Google heard you. Or should i say Google crawled your mind?

Google presents the Universal Search. Universal search adds news, images, videos, books and local results in the standard results. “Google’s vision for universal search is to ultimately search across all its content sources, compare and rank all the information in real time, and deliver a single, integrated set of search results that offers users precisely what they are looking for.”

New design: Google adds a horizontal navigation menu to all of its services, but the menu will feature different links based on the page you’re currently viewing. Check this post for screen shots.

Search Experiments: Google Experimental, a new place from Google Labs where you can see new features and layouts tested for the search results. You can play with them and send feedback so that Google makes them better and they eventually become a part of the Google search experience.
