Google is taking steps to speed up the mobile version of its search engine. And while the company’s at it, it’s released a Today Screen plugin for Windows Mobile users. The plugin essentially lets you start a search from your home screen without even bothering to open up your web browser first. Of course, as you can see in our screenshot, Microsoft has been bundling a Windows Live Search plugin with Windows Mobile for a while, but we found that Google returned our search results much faster than Windows Live.
Google already has similar plugins for Symbian and BlackBerry devices.
You can install the new plugin by navigating to mobile.google.com on a Windows Mobile web browser and clicking the “Search (Download)” link.
