A  Google appearance trick to show how to change Title with your name

Sometimes you may need to impress your friends with your name appearing on the main screen. This can only be done temporarily as once you clicked the search button it will go back to default Google.

Previously it used to be http://www.pimpmysearcher.com, but due to trademark issues pimp my search is closed for ever.  But still if you want a custom home page you can make it via shinysearch.com

It comes with different styles all you need is to type in your name or word you wanted your search screen to appear as..

Now if you want to make it as your home page, you can still do it…

FireFox Users:

  1. Copy the below website address
    http://www.shinysearch.com/myhome.php?style=lion&ltext=
  2. Click the “Tools” menu in the top & then click on “Options…”

During researching online, its common to have multiple searches running at different tabs/ windows at the same time. Navigating between tabs and windows can often be annoying  and chances we may lose track or miss   the flow in search. I came across this site which has the ability to run 4 Google searches in a single tab. It will be very useful for people with big screen and dual screen computers.

Site is named under http://www.googlegooglegooglegoogle.com. There is a green arrow, clicking it pop ups a windows asking for specific URL that you wanted to run on that specific window. A dedicated “W” icon for Wikipedia and a “X” close it  if you choose to use only 3 or 2 partitions.

Additionally it also has a menu option to open closed tab, set pages on start up, always Google 4, big list of other google, side by side search.

Hope you enjoyed 4googles..Comment if you got any more ideas
