Google has built tons of nifty features into their amazing search engine that do a lot more than just help us find things on the Internet.
A couple of great examples are their instant instant weather snapshot and their handy dictionary service (simply type define:word into the search box, where word is the term you want to have defined).
Another of my favorites is the Google Timer. Here’s how to use it:
1 – Visit www.google.com and type set timer for X minutes into the search box (where X is the number of minutes or hours you wish to count down).
2 – Click the blue search button. The top portion of your screen should now look something like this:
The timer will immediately begin counting down the number of minutes or hours you specified in step 1.
Note: The maximum length of time that can be counted seems to be 23 hours and 59 minutes (entered into the search box as 23 hours and 59 minutes).
