Easy as 1-2-3 - introducing Google Web Elements

May 27, 2009

Today at Google I/O, we launched Google Web Elements with one goal in mind - making life easier for developers. Google Web Elements make it incredibly simple to add Google products to your site, app or blog. It's so easy, you'll feel like you're cheating. Inspired by the convenience of embeddable YouTube videos, Google Web Elements allow you to add products like Google Custom Search, Google Docs, and Google Maps to your website with the simplicity of copy and paste. For instance, here's the new Google News element:

Each element is designed to help you get started quickly without spending time on the deep technical details. Yet behind it all, Google Web Elements are powered by Google's scalable and flexible developer APIs, offering a world of customization just beneath the surface, keeping up with your site as it grows.

For more details, check out the Google Code and Custom Search blogs. Google Web Elements are already available for eight of our most popular products, with more soon to follow. To get started, visit the Google Web Elements homepage and please be sure to let us know what you'd like to see us work on next.
