This is a very interesting idea. Stefan Grothkopp's gives the user a unix/linux type shell interface for Google searches via a web browser.

I'm not sure if it searches any faster than Google, but learning a few command line, er, commands I guess a user can experience a streamlined and powerful search that has a nostalgic 'lynx' feel.

The features of Goosh are:

web : google web search
news: google news search
more: get more results
blogs: google blog search
read: read feed of url
feeds: google feed search
place: google maps search
translate: google translation
