Google Tests Search Suggestions

In its never-ending quest to one-up search competitors, Google is beta testing a new featured called Google Suggest, which guesses what users are typing and offers suggestions. Google Suggest is the latest development to come out of Google Labs, a testing ground for the company's new search technologies.

Google Suggest pops up a menu below the search bar as letters are typed, much like auto-complete features found in modern browsers. Instead of basing suggestions on a user's search history, however, Google recommends queries based on popularity and even displays the number of results directly in the menu. Google Suggest works with most browsers using JavaScript and cookies.
