Historians Could Be Helped by Google Experiments with Search





Google search, love it or hate it, has become ubiquitous. And now, according to a post Monday on the Official Google blog, searching may be evolving. Google is experimenting with “alternate views for search results,” including timeline, map, and information views that should hopefully provide a better sense of context to the search results.

The timeline view allows users to filter search results by date, using either a timeline at the top of the page, or by typing in their own set of dates in a “set filter” box on the right side of the page.
