Searching on the internet just got a whole lot easier with the arrival of Google’s latest search tool Google Suggest.

According to Google, the new tool will help people search more efficiently by correcting spelling errors as you type and suggesting queries.

“We find that by providing suggestions up-front, we can help people search more efficiently and conveniently,” noted Jennifer Liu, Google product manager. “Instead of just typing ‘hotels in Washington,’ did you want ‘hotels in Washington, DC’ or ‘hotels in Washington state’? Don’t remember that song title or person’s name? Let Google help you search.”

The new feature, created by developers in Google Labs, has been on the burner since 2004 and is now being made available on Google.com, it had also been available earlier via Google Labs, Toolbar, Maps and Web Search, the Firefox search bar, the iPhone, the BlackBerry and YouTube.

The company believes that people can now look forward to more efficient searching…
