Tinkering with the UI

Developing third-party services - interfaces or programs that integrate Google's search technology - doesn't have to mean big API projects. One of the tips in this section is a simplifier that takes Google Group URLs and makes them easier to handle. That's not the most complicated application in the world, but it sure makes Google Groups URLs easier to handle if you're a researcher or an archivist.

Of course, you can go even further with the Google API, building services that access Google's search results from within other applications.
