New Google Related Toolbar Provides Recommendations In Your Browser

Posted by @ 12:12 am

Google recently launched a new Chrome toolbar, Google Related, which shows you useful and interesting content related to your search while you browse the web.

As you roll the cursor over the thin bar along the bottom of your screen, Google will provide videos, maps, reviews and other information relevant to the search. Users can also share their search results with friends by using the built-in +1 button.

Google have provided more details on Google Related in the video below.

Google has put in plenty of effort recently to make search results more personalized/accurate and this latest addition falls into this category. Google hopes this toolbar will save searchers time and reduce their need to juggle between many websites without missing out on the relevant information on these sites.

For example if you are looking for a restaurant in San Francisco, Google Related will search and display relevant results. To preview one of these items just roll over the item and it will pop up in a preview box, so if you roll over the video result it will pop up and play in the same preview box without the hassle of changing windows.

Google Related works in the background to find the most interesting and relevant results on the subject you are searching for, however you can hide and or completely disable it through the Options menu.

Currently, Google Related is only available for Chrome and Internet Explorer browser users and only if you have configured your toolbar’s search site to be Given that Google announced that they’re ending support for their Firefox search toolbar last month, I think we can assume that Firefox users are going to miss out on this toolbar.  Apparently, we can expect to see Google Related for other country-specific search alternatives (ie in the future too.
