By now we've all seen it and used it, so...what do you think of it?

Personally, I turned it off right away and I haven't turned it back on since. :indifferent:


--------------
Current piano projects: None atm.

Some of my performances: Feux D'artifice, by Claude Debussy, La Cathedrale Engloutie, by Debussy, Nocturne in B Major, Op. 62 no. 1, by Frederic Chopin, Ballade no. 1 in G Minor, by Chopin, Amberley Wild Brooks, by John Ireland,Prelude in D Minor, Op. 28 No. 24, by Chopin

Show me a person who describes anything as "overrated", and I'll show you a person who's run out of good ideas.

Never heard of it till now. Just checked it out. For casual usage I bet this is great... but my search terms are always too obscure to be able to make good use of it. I prefer the adjustments they've done with Google Images as well as the tools to refine the search on the left of the page. Also, really loving the ability to link Gmail accounts together.

I prefer searching with Opera's "g" shortcut still.

I don't like it. I'm not a very good typist, and I make lots of typos. It seems to be very glitchy with backspacing. I just don't like the way it "feels" I guess.

I just can't imagine that people are THAT impatient that they can't wait to hit enter at the end of their own search.

This.

Next thing we know, Google will find a way to just have you think it, and it'll search it. As unrealistic as that is, I see them pulling something stupid like that.

It's for people that have no idea how to type. I was reading the info on it and google was saying some people would take up to a minute just to finish typing a query.

I just ctrl+k to the firefox search bar anyway.
