1. I'm sure you don't need a Google account

and I'm glad the "old-fashioned" searches are still available (to DU donors) because they can search by time period.

The Google widget seems to work best for finding things you posted recently (just type in your nick and keywords) and for finding the older threads (type nick plus month and date like this: Jan-00-00). In fact, I've been able to find my very first DU post AND very first thread from about two weeks after 9/11!

2. Yes, it IS very cool to have the DU search too.
I've just started experimenting with the google DU search. Am curious about the google business model.

Thanks for answering my question.

:hi:Rock On! :hi:

6. Yes, this old hound here will learn new tricks but he's just a little slow in doing it

4. No. It just accesses the search engine
I've never had their account. It works just fine for me.

7. I just noticed it yesterday.
Very cool. I've had more success using it than I've had using the DU search function.
