Google "Suggest" Beta

Google Suggest Beta

It's just like Google's normal search except that it autocomplete's your typing with popular search term suggestions.. complete with predicted number of hits in the dropdown! Very impressive :)

It is not like Google Desktop or your own browsers' autocomplete inasmuch as keeping track of your own searches, it only suggests out of a pool of globally popular searches. I find it to be very very very *fast* considering that it calls back to the server as I type (about 1/5 of a second per character on bendcable). From a "guess what I'm about to say" perspective it is entirely phenominal. :)

Here is the FAQ

(PS, We got our kitty back.. he just sauntered back home after about a week and a half; what nerve ;) but now Christian is in the hospital with asthma related woes :( )
