Google launches U.S. government search site

Google has opened a new website, U.S. Government Search.
The new Google site, U.S. Government Search, offers a focused searching ground for, well, all things government. The engine seems geared toward federal employees and perhaps subcontractors dealing with the U.S. government, but looks useful for anyone looking to navigate the massive bureaucracy.

FirstGov.gov, the U.S. government's official Web portal, does offer a search engine, but seems to be more of a directory of government agencies and topics. It is sectioned by "For Citizens," "For Business and Nonprofits," "Government to Government" and "Federal Employees." There is also a Spanish language version.
