Google launches Google Squared

Google launched "Google Squared" yesterday i.e., on 3rd Jun 09.

Google squared takes the search query and tries to present the result in the tabular form, just like a spread sheet does.

Google Squared is very configurable; a visitor can add and delete rows and/or columns, and sometimes replace data that Squared puts in your results.

This is an experimental search tool that collects facts from the web and presents them in an organized collection, in squares, similar to a spreadsheet.

Example showing Google Squared results for search term PLANET
The following shows the squared results when I have performed the search for the query - planets.

Google Squared builds squares with rows for each of several specific planets and columns for corresponding facts, such as image, description, orbital period, equatorial surface gravity and mean density.

Furthermore you can add/delete the columns based on the specific information you are looking for. As you delete rows/columns you don't like Google Squared will get a fresh idea of what you're interested in and suggest new rows and columns to add.
