I hadn't ever really thought about it until I heard a young French woman the other day say "j'ai googlisé" (I googled), but it makes perfect sense that the "google" neologism would wind up being conjugated like any other French verb.

The French have as much fun saying the word as we do. Here it is in the present tense:

googliser: to google             present participle: googlisant

je googlise: I google
tu googlises:  you google
il, elle, on googlise: he, she, one googles

nous googlisons: we google
vous googlisez: you google
ils, elles goolisent: they google
