Google Related, a new Chrome extension and Google Toolbar feature, let you automatically see interesting content relevant to what’s on the page you’re viewing, right where you’re viewing it.
“Whether you’re reading a news article, shopping for a new pair of shoes or visiting your favorite musician’s website, Google Related works in the background to find you the most interesting and relevant content on the topics you’re currently viewing,” informs Ran Ben-Yair, Product Manager, Google Related Team, Israel R&D Center.
“Results will display in a thin bar at the bottom of your screen, and will remain minimized until you hover over them with your mouse. Once selected, they’ll open up immediately in your browser window, saving you the trouble of having to open multiple new windows or tabs. If Google Related shows you something you’re interested in, you can let others know using the built-in +1 button,” Ben-Yair said.
“In order to offer you relevant suggestions, Related sends the URL and other available information about the pages you visit back to Google.”
“If you decide you’d rather not see the Related bar, you can easily hide it for specific pages and sites through the Options menu. If you use Related as part of Google Toolbar, you can disable Related entirely through the Options menu as well,” added Ben-Yair.
