Last time when I told you about Google talk hidden emoticons I was suspecting for more hidden stuff from Google. This might be true as Google has always some private projects. This time its about S2, either search version 2 or Shared Stuff.
ZDnet says s2 can be Google base, the nest generation product searching.
Have a try on this : Sign in into Google account and then navigate to http://www.google.com/s2/profiles/me. It be could be Google Labs Profile. But the s2 suggests undocumented Shared stuff. This service lets you share interesting pages with your friends. A move against of Yahoo’s delicious after Microsoft’s IE.
You need to drag the button to your web browser toolbar and click on it for sharing/emailing/bookmarking. Just like we do in delicious
Now, here’s a trick to convert favicon into (dot)png in real time. Google API will fetch and convert favicon for you by this link :
Replace blogger with any other website for whose favicon you are interested. So what’s the use?
Well, IE doesn’t show any favicons. You can display this image element next to a link. This could be a useful if you are designer, you get 32×32 PNG icon. Can also be used in comments i.e. to integrate favicon with name. And the best use can be done in blogroll. A favicon beside each website/blog link. Tell me if you got some other ideas to use it.
