Google Ultimate Interface
About Google In 1996-1997, Larry Page and Sergey Brin came up with an algorithm to rank web pages, called PageRank. Realizing the potential to improve search engines, they tried and failed to sell the technology to any. So they founded Google, which in an incredibly short period of time has become one of the world’s most powerful companies. While primarily known as a search engine, Google now makes a wide variety of web-based and other software and is known for investing in wide-ranging projects outside their core such as through their philanthropic arm, Google.org. Their products are available in almost every country and in a very large number of languages. Google’s enourmously successful advertising business accounts for almost all of their revenue and allows Google to subsidize many other ideas. Google is a market and quality leader in web search, online maps, online video (through YouTube), and areas. Alternatives to Google Why not use nothing but Google all the time?

Unsafe Search While Google and Yahoo allow you to filter pornography and explicit sexual content from your search results using their "SafeSearch" feature, they do not provide a means to search exclusively for such adult material. It's a shame when someone searching for pornographic material related to, say, llamas, is forced to slog though many pages of perfectly innocuous llama sites before finally hitting upon the llama porn he was looking for. And very few people who do a Google search for "nice tits" want to find a site like this one. Use this form to conduct an "unsafe search." The unsafe search works by performing two queries, a normal query and a query with SafeSearch enabled.

Musings about librarianship: 6 common misconceptions when doing advanced Google Searching As librarians we are often called upon to teach not just library databases but also Google and Google Scholar.

Still, given that Google has become synonymous with search we should be decently good at teaching it. I've noticed though, often when people teach Google, particularly advanced searching of Google, they fall prey to 2 main types of errors. The first type of error involved not keeping up to date and given the rapid speed that Google changes, we often end up teaching things that no longer work. The second type of error is perhaps more common to us librarians.

License: The licenses vary extremely from source to source. Bobbyjoyner added: How to View Passwords Hidden Under Asterisks [Video] Google Chrome, Firefox and other browsers hide passwords behind asterisks but you can easily view the saved passwords using the built-in developer tools. Web browser hide passwords under asterisk characters for improved security. Say you are on the Gmail login page and the web browser, as always, has auto-filled the username and passwords fields for you. This is convenient because you can sign-in to your account with a click but because you have not been typing these saved passwords for a while now, you don’t even remember the Gmail password anymore. All web browsers, for security reasons, mask the password fields in login forms behind asterisk characters thus making it impossible for passersby to see your secret string. There’s however an easy workaround that will let you convert those asterisks into the actual password and you don’t need any external utilities or bookmarklets for this.
