Search Engine Watch points to images and transcripts from news reports on the London bombings on Google Video (enter “london bombings” or “london explosions”).
Gmail is now also available in Danish, Finnish, Swedish and Polish, Gary Price writes. They’re not showing up in my settings/ languages dialog (which shows 13 languages including English, German, Spanish and Italian, but nothing like Danish or Finish).
Yahoo’s Jeremy Zawodny releases a Greasemonkey user script for Firefox to add “My Web Links” to Google. [Via Feeeds.]
Google added a link to “Google Extensions for Firefox” to their Labs page, possibly intended to contain the Google Toolbar for Firefox that was expected to be released today. Note the link from the Lab doesn’t work for me at the moment and returns “The requested URL was not found on this server.”
Update: Only minutes later, the Extensions page goes live and works now. It contains three tools:
- The Google Toolbar, including such features as a PageRank indicator for every web page you visit. (Did anyone get the spellchecker to work?)
- “Google Send to Phone”, which will sent messages of web page content to your mobile phone. This works for U.S. numbers only.
- Google Suggest, which adds auto-completion to the Firefox search bar. (Google alerted me that I’m using the wrong version of Firefox Deer Park Alpha – it only supports 1.0, and not 1.0+.)
(So maybe that’s why Google hired Firefox engineers?)
Flickr is shows photos from London (tagged “bomb”). [Thanks Michel T.]
Enki Boehm thinks he might have found a way to tell whether a site is blacklisted by Google (or just, say, not yet indexed).
Paul S. sends in the spikes of Livejournal moods such as “sad” and “angry” in recent hours following the London terror attack.
