New Ways to Use Google
Real-time search & more
Chances are you're pretty comfortable finding information with Google. But you may have overlooked some of Google's newer features. Next time you search, look at the links in the left column. They'll give you more search options. Click to find images, videos, news, shopping, books, blogs, or discussions (forum posts and blog comments).

Click the More link for other interesting options. Realtime shows you a stream from Twitter related to your search query. A timeline in the upper-right shows you how the Twitter volume has changed over time; move the timeline slider to see tweets from a particular time. The last search category is Recipes.

Depending on which search category you are in, you can also refine the search by time period or location. In News, for example, you can specify the past 24 hours, week, month, or other timeframes.
