    Google search beta.....

    http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en

    So what do you think has someone posted this before? i couldnt find it.

    I like that it tells you how many hits will be generated by the word combo.

    Well it would only work if you could get the first part or first few letters of the word right.

    I quite like it, don't know how useful it will be though. Are they implementing this into the main search?

    I'm not impressed with it in an enterprise environment.

    It causes problems with Outlook searching and is only going to create extra network traffic when 40 user decide to have their own little index , rather than a single index for everyone.

    I think I'll be sticking with copernic enterprise search for the moment.

    We were talking about Google Suggest Beta not Google desktop search .

    Anyway just installed Copernic yesterday and it seems pretty cool. Not that I've tried Google's thing but AFAIK it doesnt index PDFs .
