Here's a third in the series of short posts about Google, appropriately enough about a short form of searching, this time. A Norwegian with the screen name of Mr. Calzone has created a site that makes short work of the otherwise long Google search string: no need to go to his website first, no need to download an app: simply put your search term at the end of the string http://gog.is/ Thus, for example, a search for "slaw" would be http://gog.is/slaw. You can use more than one search term if you separate them with commas or + signs, so avoiding all that cabbage would be http://gog.is/slaw+law.
All this makes sending someone a search a real piece of cake. And if you don't happen to have a search box at the top of your browser, searching itself becomes that much easier. Congrats to Calzone for a nifty notion.
