A warm welcome to everyone! gHacks.net is the direct result of a thread posted on deny.de about some advanced search options that the Google search engine makes available.
We quickly decided to design and code a program that makes use of those advanced features and to present it to the user without the need of knowing the syntax or commands that you need to use to use them.
Advanced users have of course the possibility to alter existing searches and add more searches. We encourage everyone to post their results here in the comments or send us an email so we can have a look at them and implement them in our program.
The program will be soon released in a first version. Stay tuned, there is more to come.
Update: The program is no longer available, but the web blog itself is up and thriving. We recently celebrated the site's six anniversary with many more to come in the future.
Ghacks has grown from a new tiny site to a popular technology news blog on today's Internet. The site is highly popular and publishes roughly five articles per day. Up until now, more than 11,000 articles have been posted on the site, with roughly 1600 being added to the site every year.
The majority of articles are software reviews, tutorials, troubleshooting guides, web browser reviews and tools, as well as general Internet related news topics.
You can check out some of our popular categories by following the links at the top of the page or in the right sidebar. The most popular categories are listed at the top. They include Windows, Firefox and Google Chrome.
You can also use the site search at the top right to find specific articles of interest, or subscribe to our newsletter or RSS feed for your daily dose of technology related news.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats (video ads) or subscription fees.

Ghacks is a technology news blog that was founded in 2005 by Martin Brinkmann. It has since then become one of the most popular tech news sites on the Internet with five authors and regular contributions from freelance writers.
