Google: the new shortcut folder?
Lemme see, it's a real time search that preferentially brings you to the place you've been before. In my time, they called it "shortcuts". It was quite a welcome feature too. But now thanks to Google I can discard all my old dusty shortcuts and type "the register" in a minimalist search page to come here (not that I use my ElReg shortcut anyway, it's faster to type... especially as my browser, in a google-esque manner, auto-completes as soon as I type "th".)
If they go on like that, half the results of a Google search will be pages you've seen before (how useful...) while the other half will be twitter messages or Facebook wall comments (idem...).
