The Google “What’s New” page lists some coolio new stuff, the best of which (imho) is Google’s Personalized Search, in Beta. You first create a profile, telling Google what you want to search (say, Movies). Then you click on “Start Searching.” When the results come back, you can move this little slidey bar to see the effects that personalization have on the search. Very similar to a Yahoo-directory-based browse, except it’s a search. Pretty nifty, needs some usability tweaking (please make the steps more intuitive), but overall, a great Google beta.
