Google is the best search engine in today’s world. People start saying Google rather than search; this is enough to tell the popularity of Google. These are the few more things came to the Google’s family which are provided by the Google to today’s world:
Most websites are available in English, a fair number are only written in other languages. If you find you need to read one and don’t want to take a crash language course, then Google can act as a translator for Italian, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish. The language tools web page has two translation methods. The first translates a phrase that you type or paste in. The second translates an entire website. The results aren’t perfect but it’s usually enough to get the gist of what’s written. Google will allow you to translate any document from their search results by the click of a link. What might be less obvious is that they might enable you to search foreign languages in your native language. All translating would be done behind-the-scenes, so that when you search for “thus spoke”, you might as well get results which only contain “also sprach.”
If you want to invest in an office suite for just using a spreadsheet, Google has a solution. With the Google Online Spreadsheet you can create, store and share spreadsheets on the web just like using any offline spreadsheet application. You can also import any existing spreadsheet, and above all, you can access it from any corner of the world. Google’s spreadsheet app is supposed to be less sophisticated than offline competitor Excel, it puts a focus on easy sharing and group-editing of documents.
Google allows users to synchronize their Gmail contacts with a web-based calendar. It became available on April 13, 2006, and is currently in beta stages. While users are not required to have a Gmail account, they are required to have a free Google account in order to use the software. You can also create invitations, send reminders and keep track of RSVPs right inside Google Calendar. You can also create a calendar and link it to your website or blog for others to view the events or holidays.
If you want to create your online presence Google can help you. With Google pages you can create a free home page for yourself without the knowledge of any programming or HTML. Moreover a 100MB of space for your web site is good for a start-up.
Now that we’ve shown you how to use Google’s more advanced features, you will probably be pleased to know that they can be used in conjunction with each other, thanks to the Tabs on the Google website. For example, if you were performing a search for books on the web, you can just click on the Groups tab to move the search to internet newsgroups.
