Google announced three enhancements to help you input your searches more quickly and easily:
»Feel at home with Google Suggest – a version of Google Suggest tailored to specific metro areas in the U.S. You may notice that the list of queries beneath the search box will seem more locally relevant than it used earlier.
»Spelling enhancements for names – We’ve noticed that people sometimes struggle to correctly spell names, Our new technology is based on the concept that people often know something else about the person besides the approximate spelling of his name. People often include other terms such as “composer” or “lawyer sparta wisconsin” in their search query, which provides valuable context to help us narrow the range of possibilities for spelling correction. We use these additional descriptive words to offer you better suggestions. For now this enhancement is available in our English spelling system in the U.S.
»Spelling auto-correction in 31 languages – now instead of showing “Did you mean:…” we’ll take you straight to results for the corrected search. In the past week we’ve expanded auto-correction to 31 languages across over 180 domains, with more to come.
