Whee, customized google homepage.

http://www.google.com/ig

But I'm not too sure I like it.. it tends to generate extra clutter. ::sigh::

However, this is cool. As you search, google shows you the number of results, and searches based on the stuff you've typed in so far.

All of this and more, from Google Labs: http://labs.google.com/

There's also a web accelerator that I can't use... http://webaccelerator.google.com/

A9.com, on the other hand is also pretty spiffy. I like their searching category choices. And searching there gives me a π/2% discount at Amazon, which is nice too (yay, I can save ≈1.57%) And they have pretty good search results... similar enough to google. Or perhaps a9 uses google? o.O

the webaccelerator sadly is complete and utter crap. Over the course of the few weeks after it came out I had it installed on my families and mine total time saved cumulative between both computers: <10 mins. Maybe I went to all the wrong sites and stuff, but yeah. Its mostly a way for google to collect traffic/marketing data for free. Its meant for broadband and it speeds you up by assuming that your personal cache is gonna get flushed more then google's cache on your computer.


Google Suggest, however. Rocks. I'm too lazy to go to google personalized all the time, but its pretty dhtml which lets you reorganize the things you want to subscribe to.
