Gmail and Google Talk now has more features including orkut support

Google has introduced some great new features to Gmail and Google Talk

Google Talk

Orkut, as we know is an Internet social network service run by Google and named after its creator, Google employee Orkut Büyükkökten, has given us another great feature. You can now login to your Google Talk and get all your Orkut friends there in the messenger. So no more scrapbook hassels, if your friend is online, just go ahead and chat with him/her.Its interesting how you can scrap directly from Gtalk. Orkut friends will automatically appear in your Friends list, and you’ll find out instantly if you’ve received a new orkut scrap.

Offline Messages
Now if your friends have chat history enabled, you can send them messages even when they’re not online. Just enter a message into the chat window as you would normally, and they’ll get it the next time they sign into Google Talk. In Gmail, offline messages can be searched and organized — just like instant messages in their chat history.

Google Custom Search Engine : Create your own Google Powered Search Engine

Google today released a new service for webmasters and bloggers where you can create your own search engine powered by Google, called Google Co-opGoogle Custom Search Engine : Create your own Google Powered Search Engine.

But personally I feel the only thing that makes this different from adsense custom search is that adsense custom search does not allow more than four websites to search, but on the other side in adsense we can choose atleast the colors. Have a look at a custom search engine I have made.

Features :

Build and customize your own search engine

  • Specify the sites you want to include in searches.
  • Place a search box and search results on your website.
  • Customize the look and feel to match your website.
  • Invite your community to contribute to the search engine.
  • Make money from relevant ads in your search results.
