Google fixes video search

And celebrates birthday

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

Google, celebrating its seventh birthday today, has revamped its video search service.

Google video now plays back search results in a large video window within the browser without the need to download irrititating media players. This means the service is available on Linux and Mac machines for the first time.

Next to the video window is a brief description of the video clip, its length, the date it first appeared and a link to the originating website.

Google is promoting the service with the exclusive airing of Everbody Hates Chris - Chris Rock's new comedy. Episodes will be available via Google all week prior to broadcast on Thursday. Google has also removed the page count from its front page. Yahoo and Google were quibbling over who had the most pages indexed - Google now claims three times as many as any other search engine but no longer says how many pages that is.

More at the Google blog here - or have a look at the new service here.

Seven years ago today Google, with three employees - Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Craig Silverstein, began life in a friend's garage. ®
