Other products swept out in the latest cleanup round include open source code scouring tool Code Search, social product Jaiku, iGoogle social features and API access to Google search for selected researchers. This year Google has also taken down Google Health, Power Meter, Google Labs and Google Toolbar in Firefox amongst others.
