The Unofficial Google Unix Shell : Goosh

Goosh is website provides Unix like command line interface for google search. Website is created by Stefan Grothkopp. This google-interface behaves similar to a unix-shell. You type commands and the results are shown on this page. It displays only first four results.

You can see the various commands by executing ‘help’ command as shown in below image.


Below is a result of command executed as “smashingfeeds


I tried few commands which are working fine with this. For example command like “clear” will clear the shell screen. There are something interesting as well as funny with Goosh. When you type below numbers, results are strange.

1 - open http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/0_(number) or open http://www.cdnow.com/

2 - open http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2

3 - open http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/

4 - open http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/

When i entered 1, first time it displays “open http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/0_(number)” and next time it showed me “open http://www.cdnow.com/”

This is confusing.

Well, you can check out some of the interesting comments on Slashdot.
