Add persistent searches to Gmail with greasemonkey

See this blog post from persistent.info. It is a greasemonkey script that adds the ability to define and save persisten searches. Saved searches show up in a little orange box along the left side of the screen.

Gmail greasemonkey persisten searches

Uses cookies to track the “contents” of the searches and might need some page refreshing (I had to log out and log back in to get it to work). Very cool. See here for other Google and Gmail greasemonkey scripts.

Grokker

Cool new search visualisation from Groxis. Displays the results of a search graphically, grouping similar search results into specific areas by subject. Try out these searches for ASP.net, Bill Gates or Object Oriented. See the NYT article (reg required).

Currently displaying results of Yahoo! searches only, it is only a matter of time before more innovative displays of results appear on other search engines. Of course, others are already taking advantage of the the open-ness of Google Maps to do some pretty funky stuff.
