Google with new kind of experimental searches


Google has created an experimental search page to let you try out some of their newest ideas. You can read about it on the official google blog.

They have added Map View, Timeline View and Info View to their standard list view.

About Map View

Map view solves this problem by plotting some of the key locations contained in your web results onto a map.

About Timeline View

The graph across the top of the page summarizes how dates in your results are spread through time, with higher bars representing a larger number of unique dates. Click anywhere on the graph to zoom in to that particular period of time, and use the text box to the right to specify any range of years, months, or days.

About Info View

Now you’ll notice a new control panel on the right side of the page.
Clicking on the different options in the panel changes the information shown below each result. Usually we show some text from the page that includes a few of the words you searched for. Now you can instead reveal text containing dates, locations, measurements, or images.

ResearchBuzz has a post and example searches but you should check it out, it’s cool.
