    Here is a simple but nifty tool that might save you a click per day: WebSource.it.

    All it does is submit two queries to Google and get you the total number of results for each query. No actual search results but just two numbers. This is useful for some people who use Google to determine how words are spelled or to find out which product is more popular.

    As the site explains “Is it privilege or priviledge? Away from or away of? Microsoft rocks or Microsoft sucks?”

    The service is simple and cute and I enjoyed playing with it for a few minutes. I don’t think it will replace Answers.com for me but maybe it will settle a few office discussions. Either way, I now finally know how to spell my own name
