Google Moderators (beta)

<------ An another free service site by Search engine giant, Google announced on 24th Sept, 2008 - Google Moderators.

This is a port to Google App Engine of an existing tool Google developers use all the time and internally called as Dory (after the fish who asked questions all the time in Finding Nemo). And, now it's open to the whole world.

So, just try out this fun tool to suggest your own questions and votes on other's questions too.

Matt Cutts says on it -
Well, Google is not the only company that does this, of course. Yahoo for example has their excellent Yahoo User Interface Library, Yahoo Pipes, or YSlow. Its just nice when companies release code or tools that benefit lots of people on the web.
Let us do tech talks with Google Moderators.

Google Big Bang LHC Logo

Today, Google have graphed a new logo for the homepage having Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment logo.

We can easily see the excitement about this LHC experiment on any face who have interest in science and scientific things specially in physics as this would be the future of physics.

Scientists at the CERN research centre in Switzerland are aiming to use this wonder machine to gain a better understanding of the birth and structure of the universe, and to fill gaps in our knowledge of physics.

Well, it's a big topic to discuss...I am not that much intelligent...however a well known Prof Stephen Hawking said that "Whatever the LHC finds or fails to find, the results will tell us a lot about the structure of the universe."

Google Chrome - Web Browser by Google

9/01/2008, Google announced the release of an open-source web browser known as Google Chrome, a beta version which will be released on Tuesday in more than 100 countries.

So, what you think, would it be a danger for
Mozilla (Firefox 3) and Microsoft (IE 8 beta 2) already holding the much popularity within users worldwide and Mozilla Firefox 3 is my favorite. Can't say, if it would be a danger to the popular existing web browsers but yeah! it surely be a great competition as it's a Google product.

Some of the important points about Google Chrome -

  • Special tabs - Instead of traditional tabs (below the address bar) like those seen in Firefox or IE, Google Chrome has the tab buttons on the upper side of the window.

  • Speed dial - As a default homepage, the browser offers a “speed dial” feature, similar to the one in Opera browser. This gives users a view of their most visited web pages in 9 screenshot thumbnails.

  • Privacy mode - As like IE8 Beta 2, Chrome also comes with privacy mode or porn mode feature. This mode lets users create an "incognito" window where "nothing that occurs in that window is ever logged onto your computer."

  • Safe browsing experience - Chrome will regularly keep on downloading a list of harmful sites to fight harmful malwares and phishing attacks. And, whatever will run in a tab will be filtered so that it doesn't affect the computer machine.
And to know more about the features, just check this comic book explaining the Google Chrome in much better way.

Matt Cutts has also posted a post about Google Chrome in his blog.
