According to Google Blogoscoped, Goosh.org has developed an unofficial Google interface that works on principles of unix-shell. This new command page has been created by Stefan Grothkopp and as he explains, “You type commands and the results are shown on the page.” It is quite simple really, all you need to do is to go to Goosh, in the screen in front of you, type the 'help' command and a list of all available Google compatible commands will be displayed. For instance, if you need to know about the latest happenings in Iraq, you just have to key in 'news iraq' or 'n iraq' and just like the Google SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages), the results will be shown on the same page and in the same order.

Here is a snapshot of the query that I ran using Goosh.

Search Google Via Command Line Interface

It is a really cool way to search the web. It kind of takes you back to the days of DOS (Disk Operating Commands) and the way almost everything was handled via a certain set of commands, inserted manually. 'Old is Gold' really!
