Star your favorite search results

Stars let you quickly and easily bookmark your favorite web content. Click the star icon next to any search result's title. The next time you conduct a search while signed in to your Google Account, and one of your starred items is relevant, it will appear in a special list right at the top of your results. Stars sync with your Google Bookmarks and Google Toolbar, so you can easily see and organize your starred items whenever you want.


Biking Directions in Maps

Google Maps now features directions customized for biking, helping you find a convenient and efficient route that makes use of dedicated bike trails or lanes and avoids hills whenever possible. To find biking directions, select "Bicycling" from the drop-down menu when you do a directions search on Google Maps or turn on the "Bicycling" layer in the "More" menu at the top of the map.

Google Reader Play

Reader Play is a new way to browse the most interesting stuff on the web, all in one place. Items are presented one at a time, and images and videos are automatically enlarged to maximize the viewing experience. You don't need to have a Google account to use Reader Play, but if you have one, your experience will be personalized. Click the "Like" button, and we'll show you other content we think you'll enjoy. Reader Play is an experiment, and can be found in Google Labs.

Smart Rescheduler for Google Calendar

Once you turn this feature on, just select an event, click "Find a new time" and the gadget will take it from there.
