Google is reaching for the top!

It now seems that Google is having a go at most things nowadays with such things as Google Plus and the chrome notebooks. But now their web browser has become the second most favorite in the UK.

Google as toppled over 22% of users and has taken over firefox as the one of the most popular.

The main reasons is the amazing speed over other web browsers and it’s neatness to it and not having lots of toolbars like IE9 or FireFx

I am a user and have used all the bug browser names (opera, firefox, safari, IE9 and chrome) and I have found chrome to be the best.

Google is doing a great job at the moment!

What do you think of Chrome

(UPDATE: Brett’s Note: Opera and Chrome is the best to me!)

Google maps tells you when to get off the bus

Anyone in london knows how difficult it is to get around such a large congested city. Its even worse for someone who has never been there. But it seems that google maps can help you with that.

This is down to their new public transport addition to it. It not only lets you find out how long it will take, but where you should get off and such others etc. You can use it to plan bus, Tube, DLR and tram journeys. And if you have an Android phone, it’ll even tell you the location of the nearest Underground station or bus stop and, once you’re on your way, tell you when to get off.

This is a great addition to google maps and i would like to try it first hand. lets hope it doesn’t get lots of people who have come to see the olympics going to the wrong place!

Google Launches Hotel Finder

Google has launched hotel finder which Google says will make finding a hotel easier. This interface finds the hotels in the area you type in. The hotel finder also has the prices for the hotel incorporated into it. Also you can book hotel rooms, Compare Hotels and Make Short list’s for hotels you would like to compare further.

 In my opinion i think this will be useful for people who want to find hotels and compare them.

This Google tool is still in experimental mode but you can try it out at http://www.google.com/hotelfinder/

Google Launches “Interventions” Its time to make the switch

The company today rolled out a cheeky new “email intervention” program, offering existing Gmail users with a way to nudge their friends to switch over from their existing provider.

“You’ve probably already improved the lives of your friends and family members by helping them switch to Gmail, but what about that one friend who still hasn’t made the switch?” the site reads. “It’s time to take a stand and stage an intervention.”

What that amounts to is one of three specialized form e-mails that existing Gmail users can pick from and send to friends that includes a prepared “intervention video” that pitches the service. Users can also record their own personalized message that uses YouTube.

Google plus hits 20 Million users

Since its launch on June 28th 2011, google plus has gained 20 million users. Compare this to Facebooks current 750 million and twitters 200 million current users, it seems quite small, however in such a short space of time it has achieved quite a good number of users.

Even if the number seems small compared to those two, this new take on social networking has certainly gained a lot of popularity among many people. So, is google plus going to take over from facebook? Not at the moment

It has some flaws in it that need to be ironed out. I like the idea of having circles as it puts your friends and family in seperate circles. However the method used to invite shouldn’t need to use so many different devices and such. Also the chat is a bit glitchy at the moment and i have frequent trouble with it.

However in its short time of being on the internet it has achieved something that would be hard for a lot of websites to follow.
