Google’s auto-suggest functionality has completed changed the way I search now. I no longer even attempt to beat the browser with my search term, but rather just type the first few characters and instinctively pause and wait for the ¬†cloud to figure out what I meant.

One of my favorite uses of this feature is using the word ‘vs’ for product and service research. Say I’m looking for e-commerce software, and I find one that looks pretty good.

and BOOM, a bunch of suggestions to also consider. Beware though, there can be a telephone-effect when you keep picking a topic and doing a new ‘vs’ search.

Google vs tip
adsense vs tip
