New Features from Google - Library, Suggest, Print.

I came to know about this one today morning while i was watching BBC World. Google my favorite search engine has come up with their new project called Library. This allows google to scan the millions of books from some of the world's best Universities. Google is partnering with the New York Public Library and the libraries of Harvard University, Stanford University, the University of Oxford and the University of Michigan. For more info on Google's Library click here.

As i have already written about how other players are getting into search engine acticity, i guess Google plans to stay on top of other Search Engines by coming up with some of the innovative ideas. World's largest OS company Microsoft yesterdayt also has unveild its beta version of Desktop search engine making the field even more competitive. I feel Microsoft has an edge over Google in Desktop search among PC users because they will surely package with their OS and this has been their marketing stratergy to corner some of the other software vendors over a period of time. If u remember the same happened with Real Player, Microsoft came up with their own Windows Media Player.

For those of you who have not heard about Google's Froogle, Scholar, Groups, Local, News, and the rest do visit here to learn more of it.

The following features from Google are still not listed on their site as they are still in there Beta launch. But do try it out.

1)Try this one its called "Google Suggest". Google Suggest suggests you the words as you type in the text box. More info on Google Suggest.

2)This one is called "Google Print".Google Print puts the content of books where you can find it most easily. More info on Google Print.

Finally to find out what is Google presently working upon, you can visit their playground called Google Labs.

Now you know i am great fanatic of Google:).
