Google Hacks 1.6.5

A compact utility that helps users perform custom searches on Google via their default web browser and look for Music, Book, Video, Tools, or other categories
Google Hacks is a small application that enables you to perform custom searches for various Google services without accessing the designated web pages.

Select between different search types

The application allows you to choose from 12 custom search types including: Music, Book, Video, Tools, Hacks, Proxy, Lyrics, Fonts, Application, Torrent, Cache and Web hosting. Each category comes with additional options that will refine your search and make it even more accurate.

Search via your default web browser

All you have to do is enter the desired search string and press the Search button. The application will automatically open your default web browser and search for the entered string.

Look for items by file extension

If you want to search for a specific song, you can choose the Music section along with the desired file type (MP3, WMA, OGG). Books can be easily found even by the type of their extension (PDF, TXT, LIT, RAR, DOC, RTF, CHM, PPS, ZIP or ODT).

With Google Hacks you will be able to search for specific videos even by their file types. Just select the Video option, the desired file types you want to search for and the application will do the rest. During our tests the utility managed to find somewhat accurate results for our search terms.

Find your favorite lyrics, fonts

and tools

Google Hacks also allows you to search for the lyrics of your favorite songs by selecting the Lyrics option and entering the desired song title or artist name. Fonts can also be found easily using this utility, just type your search query and the program will instantly find related fonts.

Do you need to search for specific applications? With Google Hacks the trouble is over. By selecting the Application option you can choose the file types you need to search for: EXE, RAR, ZIP or DDL.

Bottom line

If you need to perform custom searches or just want to quickly find music, books, videos and other stuff, Google Hacks may come in handy.
