Google has been logging data about popular search trends for quite a while with its Hot Searches page, but now you can see all the hot trends in a sleek full-screen visualization. The full-screen hot trend visualizer shows the same data, but in a full-screen grid that keeps updating.
You can easily change which country you want to see hot trends for at the bottom of the screen, and Google says that it updates trending searches as they happen so you’re always seeing the most up-to-date hot trends.
Along with the new visualization, Google also created a new charts feature that shows you the most-searched items within certain topics for every month, from actors to books to car companies to dog breeds. The chart even shows if the ranking for a given item went up, down or stayed the same as compared to the previous month.
Although not all that useful in a practical sense, it’s pretty interesting to see what the top search trends are around the world.
