Google Labs releases LiveSearch-based enhancement

In: Neat Stuff

11 Dec 2004

Kevin Gibbs, software engineer at Google, has written a bit of an enhancement to Google Search that uses LiveSearch. His post on the Google Blog was probably written to make me feel jealous I wasn’t working at Google. Anyway, check out Google Suggest over at Google Labs – it’s kinda useful but I guess no longer cool (since this isn’t new).

And would you look at that: “muvee autoProducer crack” comes up when I enter “muvee”. And of course typing “chu yeo” in there doesn’t give “chu yeow”. More on how it works in the Google Suggest FAQ.

Maybe I’m mistaken but it seems there is a big difference between livesearch and google suggest.
Google suggest is displaying suggestions based on other peoples searches and the number of times a word or phrase has been searched for. Where livesearch is displaying actual search results as you type.
This is why it appears that google doesn’t do a full search.

Google Suggestions, version 1
This is pretty funky: Google Suggests digs out alternative queries / completions of your query as you type; e.g. type ‘new’ to see news, new york times, newspaper, newsgroups etc listed as alternative queries (ranked by popularity).
