I Was Wrong About Google Suggest

Who Knows
Suggest Something

When Firefox introduced Google suggest integration into the search bar I have was quiet sceptical that this was at all useful and wouldn’t, in fact, get in the way. I was wrong, it’s pretty damn useful, just not really for speeding up searches. It is useful for quickly doing sums (Google suggest includes Google’s calculator) and checking spelling. I very rarely found it useful for actual search though, apart from the one or two times it’s helped me find the proper term I’m probably looking for. Anyway, I was wrong, govna

[Incidentally, as far as improvements to the Firefox search box go, Second Search is the best]
