Google Government Search

Google launched a custom Personalized Homepage for searching federal government Web sites. The site available at http://www.google.com/ig/usgov "targets federal employees who often need to search across several government agencies", informs Washington Post. Google U.S. Government Search includes information about American Forces, White House, Government and it's the logical extension of the old Uncle Sam site that restricts the search to .mil and .gov sites.

"People are moving away from directory access to enter these sites," said Kevin Gough, product manager for Google U.S. Government Search. "They just want to type in a few words to pinpoint the information they need."
