Goosh Golly!

June 4th, 2008 5 comments

I stumbled across Goosh today, which is a command line interface to Google. I’ve gotta admit I never even though of the utility of a command line interface for Google. But it’s cool, and you should check it out.

Goosh 0.4.4-beta #1 Tue, 03 Jun 08 22:59:00 UTC Google/Ajax
Welcome to – the unofficial google shell.
This google-interface behaves similar to a unix-shell.
You type commands and the results are shown on this page.

Your language has been set to: en (use lang to change it)
Enter help or h for a list of commands.>
