Google Suggest

0 comments suggest edit

Not to just join the chorus, but I am blown away by Google Suggest. It’s a simple idea, but well executed - it guesses what you are searching for as you type it and presents the options as a list. If you’ve used the auto-complete feature in IE, you’ll get the picture.

\ Suuure… This is what you were *really* searching for.

So in the above screenshot, I’ve typed in “good clean f” and Google has presented it’s best guess in the text box as well as other options below.

    The bad thing about Google Suggest is that it seems to filter dirty words. Even worse--it doesn't filter racial slurs. Consistency is important....

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place but i'm new to blogging
    I want to create a Google gadget something simple just a picture with some liks to a site I know.
    I have read the google babble on the site regarding this and I find I need an XML editor.
    Can I get one free somewhere reliable. I tried MicroSoft and while the edit was free they tied it in with somet5hing else that I did not know that they charge for.
    Any help appreciated

    Try XMLSpy from Altova. I believe they have a free personal edition of their XML editor.
