Google Labs just released Google Suggest, a little tool that tries to guess your search query as you type it in.
It appears to be a simple UI layer over their spelling correction feature. No real query refinement, no clustering to offer suggestions of different terms (synonyms, related topics).
A cute toy, but I don't see anything really interesting here.

Update: Chris DiBona points to the ABC's of Google Suggest. Cute.
Update: Kevin Gibbs talks about Google Suggest on the Google Blog. It's another 20% free time project. Cool.
Update: A clever knock-off of Google Suggest does the same nifty UI for lookups in a dictionary. Nice work.
Update: And a nifty version of the suggest UI for CPAN (a Perl module archive). [via Joseph Scott]
