90% of people don't know how to use CTRL+F

90 percent of people don't know how to use CTRL/Command + F to find a word in a document or web page! I probably use that trick 20 times per day and yet the vast majority of people don't use it at all.

This is the staggering fact that Alexis Madrigal from The Atlantic tells us about. To find out more about it, read his article.

Madrigal also draws our attention to the campaign, which I have been meaning to post about for some time. is a kind of daily treasure hunt that Google publishes every day with an aim to develop searching strategies among Google users.

Every day Google publishes a different question for users to find an answer to by implementing searching techniques. If you decide to take part in the game, you choose how to do it, either trying to answer the question with your own Google wit and wisdom (Race the clock) or getting some tips and help from Google itself (Play normally), with what we can learn and develop searching strategies.

The question is always published in English.
