Google Blog Search

Ages ago Google stopped providing excerpts for LiveJournal searches, but they've now made up for it with Google Blog Search, which lets you search the blogosphere or a particular blog with full excerpts (and some intelligence in terms of figuring out individual authors and blogs by name). It seems to work pretty well, although it appears you need to use the "http://www.livejournal.com/users/USERNAME" URLs even for paid users.

(Cue doomsayers who will now predict that Google will begin excluding blogs from its regular search.)

The great part about this, if you ask me, is this:
