Web application Gog.is takes complicated Google search URLs and simplifies them down into a descriptive, short format for easy sharing over chat—without searching yourself and doing the copy/paste thing. The Gog.is URL format is simple, and converts any keyword after the slash into a Google search—for instance,
gog.is/lifehacker will pull up a Google search for "lifehacker" just like you would expect (albeit via the main US site), or you can combine search terms by simply adding a comma or plus symbol between keywords, so
gog.is/lifehacker,wii,hack would search google for all three keywords. While the site may end up being just a novelty—and "just Google it" is the new RTFM—it could be useful when you need to tell somebody what to search for without wasting your own time doing the search. For a more obviously useful service, check out the previously mentioned Google Maps shortening service mapof.it.
