Google has launched a new feature that tries to guess what people are looking for as they type queries into a search box.Published: December 10, 2004, 5:51 AM PST By Margaret Kane Staff Writer, CNET News.com Google Suggest quietly debuted this week on the company's Labs site, which showcases Google features that "aren't quite ready for prime time," according to a message on the site. When someone starts typing a request into the search box, a drop-down menu appears with suggestions as to what that person could be looking for... Google's competitors haven't stayed silent. Yahoo said Thursday that it plans to start testing a downloadable desktop search application in early January, and Microsoft has plans to launch a similar feature by the end of the year.
The only easy day was yesterday.

Hmmm sounds like an autocomplete function :thumbsup:

Curious as to how it would be different to the one already in XP?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
