    * Google on Steroids *

    (Well....maybe not steroids, but how about a lot of creatine monohydrate?) <img src=/S/heavy.gif border=0 alt=heavy width=40 height=34>


    Power searchers should try Fagan Finder, the ultimate Google search interface:

    Thanks, I'll have to have a play.

    What I would really, really like to see is a broader selection of file types. As in "Sound" giving .WAV and .MID or "Graphic" giving JPG, BMP, GIF, etc. Ah well, one day. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Hi, Gran ~

    If you click on the upper right-hand drop-down box where it says 'Web' and select 'Images', you can choose 'JPEG', 'JPG', 'GIF', or 'PNG' in the 'File Format' drop-down box.

    Also, from the 'Web' choice, you can find 'PDF', 'PS', 'RTF', 'DOC', 'XLS', 'PPT' and 'TXT' file formats.

    Finally, from the same drop-down box where it says 'Web', you may choose 'Alternate' (in addition to the other 10 useful choices) and subsequently compare 21 other search facilities. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Google Igpay Atinlay had to make way for this to become my new homepage.<IMG SRC=http://www.krymow.com/images/home.gif>

    How is this any better than the Advanced search that Google offers at http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en (or the advanced image search at http://www.google.com/advanced_image_search?hl=en )?

    Hi, Stuart ~

    Well, it is Google, just enhanced in a proprietary fashion that say, Avant Browser would be on the IE engine:<UL><LI>For starters and most conveniently, it has everything located on one single page with all search criteria available for all file formats and searches<LI>Option to search specific months/years<LI>Additional choices in one-drop down box on one page in the 'Web' field<LI>Likewise for the 'all' field<LI>Additional 'results' option parameters<LI>Has a 'duplicates' filter that can be toggled<LI>Multitude of javascript elite characters<LI>'Country' field option[/list]

    Re: * Google on Steroids *

    Thanks for the link, Bruce. I do notice that:
    1. My display cuts off the ends of some of the words on the search page when I use IE.
    2. Mozilla is redirected to an alternate version.

    Still, another link to add to my collection. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
