Today we'll be highlighting some of our favorite Google search tricks.

    This is great! Where was Google 25 years ago when I needed it for my homework?

    Thanks for the tips, BTW I tried several of the tips on Bing and they all worked as well.

    Thanks for the tips! I knew some, but had no clue about others like math problems and specialized file-type searches

    Then I must be caught in the same trap as captaincranky mentioned with entrapment. I only click on the most recent topics. So I don't understand why this one would have shown in the list.
