The Shape of Verbs to Come

I wrote a question on italki about whether or not there is a Portuguese equivalent of the English verb “to Google”. “Googlar” would be the likely form, I suppose. So far, nobody recognises it beyond the phrase “dar um google”.
Interestingly, I typed “googlar” into Google translate and it knew *exactly* what I meant so, Portugal and Brasil, even if you aren’t using it as a full verb yet, I think Google has plans that you will soon!  ;^)
