When doing research online, it’s common to have multiple searches running at the same time. Clicking between tabs for multiple searches can be annoying, and easy to loose track of where you’re at. Today we take a look at googlegooglegooglegoogle.com which lets you run four Google searches in the same tab.
Yes, that is really what the site is called…try saying it fast a few times. When you go to the page you will have four different Googles where you can begin searches in each.
There are a few different things you can do with each window. Click on the green arrow to go to a different site…
Easily pull up Wikipedia to have that open while you’re searching results, and you can also click back to Google.
There is a menu list in the lower left corner that allows you to restore closed Googles, change their layout, and points to a list of other Google sites.
You can close out of one or more of the windows as well to get a better view of a page.
For this example in Firefox, I’m running a Google search, checking out image results from a different search, catching up with sports headlines, and checking out a Wikipedia page all at once.
If you’re looking for a way to keep more organized while doing research, this site can come in very handy.
