The Most-requested Google Features
In the recent poll
– 481 of you sent their votes – these were the most-requested Google features from the list presented:
- A much higher level of detail in Google Maps
- Google improving spam defense in web results
- A better Google Translator
- A much smarter search AI that understands what you really want
- Search for parts of a word using wildcards
- A search across all of Google’s services
- Search for images using image comparisons
- Sort web pages by date, size etc.
- Higher storage in Picasa Web Albums
- Faster indexing of web pages
The Picasa numbers of item #9 were almost split in half by people wanting higher storage and those that didn’t care, probably a distinction between those who use Picasa and those who don’t. The higher level of detail in Google Maps topped the list, which was a bit of a surprise to me, though I definitely want that as well. The search for parts of a word (like th*s) also made the top ten... it’s a feature I wanted for a long time, albeit admittedly it’s an advanced feature, and the survey is skewed towards search experts (that is, people who read along here).
