5 People Who Might Google You & What They Might Find

It was only 15 years ago that the best you could do to find a person online was look for him on ICQ and hope you find his name. If you managed to do that, you were actually nowhere nearer to knowing anything about this person, except for the fact he owns an ICQ account. If you were very brave, you might have requested to add that person to your contacts, just to see what happens.

3 Ways To Enhance Google Chrome’s Custom Search

In terms of browsing speed and flexibility, Google Chrome has long been my favorite browser. A lot of this speed comes from the browser itself. The remaining speed is the result of its extensibility.

We’re naturally wired to dislike change – even positive change – but not all change is for the best.

Is Bing Better Than Google Search? We Find Out

Can Bing Knock Out The Champ? [INFOGRAPHIC]

If you ever decide to play a little game of word association, and someone says “search on the Internet”, the chances are you will immediately reply “Google”. “To Google” has become the everyday verb for searching online, due to the site’s near-total dominance in the search industry.
