Did you spend hours online researching the perfect itinerary for an upcoming trip? Have advice for someone wanting to cure a bad cold? Now you can share your info with the world, plus benefit from other Googlers' knowledge. Sidewiki, a just-released Google Toolbar feature, is a program that allows you to contribute to any website. User-added info appears as a sidebar beside the page, as Google uses an algorithm to display the most relevant and helpful posts up top. And relevant blog posts referencing the site or page you're viewing are added to the list, too.Once you download the tool, sites with Sidewiki entries are identified with a small speech bubble icon in the upper-left corner. You're able to add information to supplement the entire page, or comment on a specific phrase, quote, or sentence by highlighting the relevant words.
To download, visit google.com/sidewiki.
