Developed for the Yahoo! Widget Engine platform, Google UK is a small tool that provides you immediate access to Google.co.uk. It is easy to install and set up.
The interface of the application is represented by a small search bar that you can move to any position on the screen, with the help of the mouse cursor.
All you have to do is write text to look for, and either click the right arrow in the main frame or press the Enter key. Google UK immediately scans the online environment and brings up a page in the default web browser, with the results.
Unfortunately, Google UK does not integrate any configuration settings of its own. However, thanks to the default options provided by the Yahoo! Widget Engine, you can make the frame stay on top or below all the other windows, ignore mouse events and prevent dragging. Plus, you can set the opacity to a preset value between 20% and 100%.
The widget does not put a strain on the computer's overall activity, as it uses a very low quantity of CPU and system memory. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the utility did not hang or crash. Thanks to its overall simplicity, Google UK can be seamlessly handled, even by first-time users.
