We are halfway though the month of December, on the homestretch towards the end of the year. Mountain View-based search engine giant is eagerly anticipating New Years – just go over to Google.com and hit I’m feeling Lucky. Don’t type anything in the search bar, just go to the Google homepage (Google.com, not the localized versions), hit I’m Feeling Lucky and you’ll see an end of the year countdown timer (in seconds only).

As the year draws to a close, Google-owned video sharing site YouTube has made available to the public a list of the most watched YouTube videos and music videos. A list of the most popular searches users have made on YouTube has been released as well – there’s a worldwide list and a US list.
