Recently I discovered a web page that provide command line interface for google search, as the author called it as Google Shell. Check out the screenshot, and also try it out at

It does looks like unix-shell, thank to Ajax. You may think that is hilarious, but don’t make judgment before trying it out. For me, that is usable. and I should say that is perfect for CLI hardcore users.

I like google translate command line feature very much. Try this:> translate en de hello
translating "hello" from "english" to "german":


Surprisingly, when you hit tab, it does support auto complete and hitting arrow key up and down support keeping history list.

By the way, I find the idea of ordering pizza through command line is even crazy. Imagine you can write a script to loop your pizza choices and put the script to run as cron job ordering pizza as your breakfast every morning.

    This is very interesting. I like dabbling with the command line but I never expected to do it in my browser! The translate feature is pretty handy. Heh…heh. The Pizza Party Perl Script is funny. You need to have an account at dominos to order the pizza! Keep up the good work, man.

  6. Thanks for the write-up. My partner and i have always observed that most people are eager to lose weight as they wish to appear slim and attractive. However, they do not usually realize that there are other benefits for losing weight in addition. Doctors insist that overweight people are afflicted with a variety of diseases that can be perfectely attributed to their own excess weight. The good news is that people that are overweight as well as suffering from a variety of diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their own illnesses by simply losing weight. It’s possible to see a gradual but noted improvement in health if even a slight amount of fat reduction is realized.
