Google owns YouTube, by the way. But the report says even separated, YouTube would be the second largest search engine.
Read the report and TechCrunch’s analysis of the report here.
Video search on YouTube accounts for a quarter of all Google search queries in the U.S., according to the latest search engine numbers from comScore. Its monthly qSearch report, which was released on Thursday night, breaks out the number of searches conducted on YouTube. If it were a standalone site, YouTube would be the second largest search engine after Google. More searches are done through YouTube than through Yahoo, which has been the case for the past few months.
Two quick iPhone updates:
CNet is reporting Google’s iPhone app is getting a new voice. Yours.
Google on Friday is expected to release version two of its mobile search application for the iPhone. The new version works much like the old one, letting users query Google outside of the mobile Safari Web browser, as well as search through contacts and narrow down results by their current location. The big change is the addition of search-by-voice, which lets you skip the keyboard entirely.
There’s also the rumor about a new software upgrade for the iPhone next week.
Google announced that it’s cool mobile team has taken the Google Maps street view to the hand held screens. But not to my iPhone.
Visiting the Google site with an iPhone produces this message: “Sorry, Google Maps does not work on your Apple iPhone.”
Saw this on TechCrunch tonight. Google is launching its Web browser this week, tomorrow it is being reported.
The Apple version won’t be ready quite yet. Boo.
Chrome, the Webkit-based Google browser that launches tomorrow at Google.com/chrome, will give them a real foothold on the desktop and way more control over how web applications perform. While it seems that Chrome is aimed at IE and Firefox, the target is really Windows.
This is pretty cool. Gmail is letting you log out from remote locations. So if you’ve left your work machine and didn’t log out of your Gmail account, you can log in from another machine and see what IP address is still logged on. And then sign out if you want. Not a bad level of security from Google.
