Several other web performance and gui tweaks.

Please note that some updates may not be available yet for all users.

    • I have been using G+ for quite a while and it has been a great experience so far. Much better than FB in many ways: catchy GUI, better privacy, and most of all much sensible and mature users than FB.

  • Why ppl are so against google. Giving it a try won’t bother anybody. Atleast google has shown a lot of support for religions after blocking lots of anti islamic materials on their servers.

      No, they haven’t.

    • Google is the biggest racist company. More than Microsoft, Facebook. All of them are and you have seen facebook in action. Google does without shor sharaba.

      Don’t forget google owner is also jew, his friend a dirty boy.

      Google always promotes Islam against, Arab countries against news through google news, searches, youtube for brainwash.

      Russia once accused that Google is collecting people’s thoughts and other data from searches to help America build such a supercomputer which would predict about future. It will help America change the future of the world according to their liking.
