What Third Party Tool or Website Makes the Best Use of Google Search?
Question: What Third Party Tool or Website Makes the Best Use of Google Search?
Google makes a great search engine, but they also make it easy to customize with Google Custom Search Engine. That means you can use Google power to find recipes, songs, universities, or anything else you might want to find. You can create search engines within your site, within your phone app, or within your Web app. You can even customize the appearance of your search results so they blend in with the rest of your site.

Who does it best?

Answer:

The answer is up to you.

Any third party website or phone app with search powered by Google is eligible for nomination, but those that find specific or creative search results will be given more consideration than those that simply plug general Google search into their website.

For the first time, About.com's Computing Channel will be running a coordinated Reader's Choice Award program in early 2010. During January, you'll be able to nominate your favorite sites, services and innovations in categories ranging from the best IM client and email service to best Web design and Web browser. Then, in February, check back to see if your favorite nominees made the cut, and cast your vote. Winners will be announced March 1. There's no prize -- just the bragging rights that come with getting recognized by the readers of one of the biggest tech networks on the Web.

Nominations Are Now Closed

Vote for your favorite until February 24.
