Google has unveiled a new search tool Google Squared for Internet users to narrow and organize their search results as the company tries to maintain its dominance against challengers like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Google Squared, an experimental service, automatically 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.

Squared marks a radical departure for the company, which has gained a huge following by retrieving a list of links to other Web sites. In this case, Google is creating pages of its own from information culled from several sources and then displaying it in a grid.

It can be accessed at www.google.com/squared but since it is not ready yet, it displays the following message:

Google Squared will be coming soon. For now, why not have fun squaring some numbers?

But nevertheless you can have fun squaring some numbers there at the moment.
