Even after the announcement of Wolfram Alpha, the much awaited change in online searching, it can be undoubtedly said that Google is best research tool, so far discovered. However finding out truly useful results can be challenging, from the millions of pages returned on an average search.

In response to this difficulty Google has come up with a new feature called Google Squared. “It is something that really pushes search in an entirely new direction,” says Marissa Mayer, VP, Google. Google Squared gives a clear-cut, spreadsheet like answer to anything that search for.  The search results are complied in a tabular form here. The company is planning to release this through Google Labs, close to the launch of Wolfram Alpha.

'It compiles details from several Web pages and organizes them into a table on a single page, with multiple columns like a spread sheet. A search for “small dogs,” for instance, returns a list of breeds, an accompanying image and a brief description, plus the average height and weight of each breed', reports San Francisco Chronicle

Good news! Especially for those who struggle to find relevant information from the billions of web pages.
