Microsoft Firefox add-on: only UK for now

Microsoft is trying to catch up to Google by finally releasing a Firefox add on for Live Search. With Google focusing more on Chrome Firefox could be an interesting angle for other search engines to gain market share.

Google's ads Galician and has Europe almost covered

Google keeps on improving Google Translate. Not only by improving the translations themselves, but also by adding more and more language. Since Google has got Europe almost completely covered Google is starting to focus on the languages which are not a country's main language.

After adding Catalan last year, now Google has added Galician, one of the Spanish languages, to Google Translate. Now we are waiting for languages like the Frieze languages or all the German dialects.

On the European map Google is only missing out on two countries: Luxemburgs and Switzerlands main languages are not available in Google Translate.

Find exact image sizes with Image Search

Sun 1 February 2009 17:05, Bas van den Beld

A couple of weeks ago Google added features to Google Images that help you look for different types and sizes of images. Filtering can be done on the advanced page or in the dropdown supplied in Google Image Search.

Image Search has got four image sizes you can choose from: small, medium, large and extra large. Still the searches then give back different image sizes. If you are looking for a specific image size though the dropdown won't help you.

Now Google has wouldn't be Google if there wasn't a work around. And it's an easy one. If you type in the exact image size you're looking for only images with that size will be returned.
