Type in calculator, timer, or currency converter, and google will offer an in-browser solution to all such utility-based tasks


Specific Search Query

Google lets you search for exactly what you want using the following method

Just put your query in double-quotes and get search results for exactly what you typed in as it appears on different websites

Excluding Words From Search

You can easily exclude words from your search for any unwanted results
