A Couple of Handy Google Tricks

Dictionary definitions of a word:


Faster than going to, though not as complete

Search for a string in the URL:


Handy for when you remember part of the url

Specify the file type:

(or whatever)
Handy when you want to exclude pdfs (ie -filetype:pdf), or when you’re trying to find something in particular and need to narrow down the search

Metric conversions: rtfm
Great for converting metric and imperial, or basic calculations when you can’t find your calculator and the OS’ calc doesn’t cut it

Furlongs per fortnight
