Google Search Shortcuts

Lifehacker has two articles with shortcuts for Google searches, 20 in the first article and 10 more in the second.

One of the tips (that I missed the first time around) was on how to find flight status, which I wrote about here a little while ago. Another cool one is the ability to track your packages from the Google search box!

Paste the tracking number of a shipment from USPS, UPS, FedEx, or On-Trac into your Google Search bar and Google automatically figures out which service has it and links you directly to the tracking page.

Another cool one is to find out information about a dog breed you might be considering adopting:

Shetland Sheepdog Temperament Search

This is one of the more random quick results, but if you type “[dog breed] [temperament]” you’ll get an instant result listing the breed’s characteristics. It should come in handy when you’re at a shelter picking out an animal.

You have to check out these articles and learn about these neat little shortcuts.
