Google Suggest Beta

How cool. Auto-completion for your searches. Not 100% accurate, but very useful nonetheless. (a search for meshforum showed no results in the autocompletion which indicates an estimated number of results, but there are hundreds of real results in the actual search)

That implies slightly different cuts of the index are being used and/or that not 100% of all search phrases are in the auto-completion index. Even so, it is highly useful and even insightful as by typing just one or two letters you can get a sense of what people may be searching for based on the ten suggested options.
