Google adds saved search settings feature for your account

In an unsurprising move, Google have enabled a a feature to their search engine, allowing users to save their search settings to their Google accounts. The end result being that settings such as results per page and Google's infamous SafeSearch, are all the same regardless of what device you're using, so long as you're signed into your Google account.

By adding this feature, Google are aware that those most likely to be benefitting from this are mobile users who are somewhat limited by their internet connections. They're also quick to point out though, that users using multiple browsers, or those that have their browser's cookies cleared frequently, can also benefit from this added feature. Google have however not decided to enable the use of their location based search settings at this time, bad news for those that want to find a local internet café perhaps?

Google have outlined more details on one of their search pages here, allowing users to get the most out of their search engine, regardless of which device or browser they're using. To create your own search settings, simply click the settings 'cog' button on the top right and adjust the settings accordingly, making sure you're signed into your Google account.

Eh ?

de f*q did I write? I meant I like that my settings that make an impact on my searches are now synchronized even in new browser setups or after clearing the cookies.
