Let Me Google That For You – The Google search engine… with attitude added free of charge


Let Me Google That For You Let Me Google That For You   The Google search engine... with attitude added free of charge

Search engines have come a long way, leaving the ancient days of Boolean back with Betamax tapes, but it seems like there’s always at least one friend that doesn’t get how simple searching is now. Whether you actually know someone who’s lost with Google or you just want to have a quick laugh, this is the search engine you need.

You can think of Let Me Google That For You (otherwise known as lmgtfy.com) as Google… with just a little attitude tossed in for free. When you visit the page, you might actually think the Google-meister is playing a practical joke on you because the page looks just like Google’s search page, except this one has a tiny row of ads at the bottom, and a tiny text box that offers friendly instructions.

The difference really shows itself when you actually do a search. Just type in what you’re looking for, and then click either “Google Search” or “I’m Feeling Lucky.” After one of the buttons is clicked, a link is created below the search bar, offering the choices to copy, shorten, or preview.

The copy and shorten buttons are self-explanatory, but the preview button unleashes a short tutorial that walks you through how to do a Google search, ending with the question, “Was that so hard?”

If you’d prefer to surprise someone with a lmgtfy.com search, just send them the created link so they can experience the same lesson first-hand. Best of all, once the lesson is complete, the site actually completes the search for you, offering the same results the original Google would offer.

Chances are pretty good that this site won’t put the Big G out of business, but it’s good for a couple of laughs.
