    I'm Trying to find out
    What does or can google.com detect from your system when using google.com to perform a search?

    The obvious ones comes to mind are:

    Location / IP
    Browser

    However does google also detect the following?

    Operating System
    Screen Resolution
    Typing Speed


    Any I have missed?
    The reason I ask is that Im trying to find out what fingerprints google use in order to develop an application relating to search.

    I do not think google detecting operating system, or screen resolution or typing speed.

    It obviously calculating search behavior and browing which websites through google toolbar and chrome

    Google can track your registrar, OS operating system, the browser, and history. I don't think Google can or would track the typing speed but they do actually grab the screen resolution. I had to ask someone with a little more techie skills than I have. I hope this helps!

    Thanks!

    Excuse me Op But you are totally wrong ,in the google analytics you can check what screen resolution and operating system have connected to your website. YOu can even know if it is an Android or an Iphone or an Ipad etc. For the typing speed I Have no clue.
