Google Maps introduced.
Although acquired by Google in October 2004 and announced on the Google blog in February 2005, it started to appear on the home page in 2006 and Google Local was merged into the main Google maps site. In April version 2 of the API was announced.
Google Video appears in beta.
Google Video 'the world's first open online video marketplace' introduced video searches of TV shows, music and documentaries. You could even buy sell or rent content at the Google Video store.
In October 2006 Google bought YouTube and Google Videos search results would include videos found by web crawlers.
Google Videos was shut down in August 2012 and the content moved to YouTube.
Google moves to a cleaner interface. Links move from above the search bar to the top left hand corner of the browser. The browser includes links to Maps, Labs, Patents, Reader, Scholar and Finance amongst others.
