Google Squared presents search results in a spreadsheet

FirefoxScreenSnapz001.jpgGoogle Squared is a new experimental version of Google. Instead of presenting search results in the usual list of links, it instead presents them in a structured spreadsheet. Results vary depending on your search query–the suggested example search “planets,” shown here, returns columns on each planet’s orbital period and density, as well as a description and image. You can also add items of your own, and save your “squares” if you’re signed in with a Google account. Squares may become an interesting alternative to Wolfram|Alpha, the “computational knowledge engine” currently making waves.
