That pathetic sobbing sound you hear? It's SkyScanner, gently weeping in the corner, because Google Flights -- a handy flight-price-comparison tool that's been available in the US for a year or two -- now deals with journeys originating in the UK as well. It's painfully simple, comes with graphs rather than tacky ads, and most importantly doesn't take a trillion years to load when you click 'search'.

Now, off you go, there's a solid half-hour of holiday daydreaming to be getting on with. [Google via TNW]
