Google News Suggest

    May 2, 2006

Google added some Google Suggest technology to Google News.

Now, if you go to, the search box will suggest queries as you type.

It appears that the suggestions are based on news searches, and not something else, which means they can clue you in to what is happening in the news. For example, typing in “Google” reveals suggestions for “google sketchup” and “google calendar”, both hot items.

My only wish: that you could turn this on in the preferences, so you wouldn’t have to bookmark it or remember that unfriendly URL. Otherwise, enjoy!

Aside: It appears not to work in Opera, I think.
