Related material: a Google extension

There have been various attempts at providing links to suggested related material when searching — some approaches have been successful and others have merely added to the dross that accumulates during a purposive search.  Google has just released an extension which may prove quite useful.  It adds a “Google Related” bar to the bottom of the browser window and, through an analysis of searches conducted, assesses what might be considered “related”.  If you do not object to this scrutiny by Google, find more details about the extension at http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/find-more-while-you-browse-with-google.html and make your own decision about whether to install it.
