Top rock bands? Best Indian movies? Google adds on-the-spot answers
Google seems to have introduced a new feature to its rapidly growing knowledge graph arsenal that provides instant answers to queries without ever leaving Google.

Try searching for Top rock bands or Best Indian movies and you'll be greeted by results in a carousel format, complete with movie posters or band photographs.

That's not all, Google gets more specific - try search for Best Tamil movies, Best action movies, Best Hindi movies of 2011 or Best Hindi comedy movies, Best jazz artists and, no doubt, much, much more.

Google's Knowledge Graph is an attempt by the dominant search engine to provide answers as quickly and concisely as possible so users don't have to sift through a hodgepodge of Web links displayed on the main results page.
