Can we add google in an iframe or perhaps a search form to the SO Question page as an alternative to actually procceding with asking your question. Maybe some people will chuck a hail mary into the box and see if they can find an answer there first? In a lot of cases i think people are worried about the wear and tear on their machines involved in actually visting google and looking for a solution. This could also alleviate some of the stress currently placed on the flag and close vote buttons that are becoming rather worn on SO. I mean who wants to replace those mechanics?
Perhaps we show a list of top 10 results similar to possible dups for the question title? It doesn't have to be google either although that seems to be the defacto search these days. I know theres a search API.
Perhaps this only occurs for users of lower rep (newbs). Also this could only be displayed when an automatic filter of Low quality question is invoked.
