Pilgrim’s Picks for September 24

I’m back from Durango, CO. Such a cool little town–I felt like I caught a glimpse of the wild west days. Anyway, while I work to catch-up on my inbox, I’ll leave you to digest today’s Picks.

  • Is there really a third Google co-founder and was he dissed by Page and Brin?
  • Google Webmaster Central blog is once again answering your questions.
  • In case you care, Google In Quotes launches to make it easier for you to compare McCain and Obama on different topical issues.
  • Is Google Chrome losing its shine (groan!)? It appears the percentage of Google Chrome users is starting to decline.
  • Yotify is our token "non Google" Pick for the day. A neat idea, Yotify lets you set up custom "scouts" to search the web for anything from hotel deals to price reductions on your favorite gadgets.

    Wow that Google inQuotes thing is pretty insane and what a better time to launch it then now! I guess this will hold publications far more liable for what they print as “truth” in terms of quotes!

    Nick, I think the application was built with the election in mind, rather than building a quotes application without an objective.

    Could be wrong though!

    it’s interesting to know that there’s been a decline in chrome users. i do wonder though what reasons are causing these users to return to their previous browsers.

    I think it’s a tad early for a Chrome backlash, don’t you! I’ve hardly had a chance to use it yet and it’s already over? Oy.
