Google’s search box is so much more than it appears to be. You may be familiar with Google Doodles, where Google modifies its logo to commemorate holidays or events. You may also know that you can use the “Search Tools” button to refine a Google search by time, location, or other limits (found under “All results”).In fact, there are a whole host of tricks and tools (infographic) out there to make the most of your Google search. Beyond search terms and language that can refine a search, Google has built in some other neat features that are outlined nicely in this Mashable article. Some of my favorite tools are:
- Hidden “Easter Eggs” – the Chuck Norris bit is great!
- Easy unit conversions – a must for recipes.
- Package tracking
- Local movie times
