tip #3 -- Newer search results.
Tired of getting a 4 year old posts in your search results with Google? Easy to fix:
- (In Chrome) go to settings, search, search engines
- Scroll to the bottom of the 2nd list & type a name, I used "Goog"
- In the 3rd box paste in: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&tbo=1&tbs=qdr:y&q=%s
- Press enter
- Find your entry on the list & click default.
Now when you search from the omnibox, you will have newer stuff.
