Google Suggest

Try it out at http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en
"As you type your search, Google offers keyword suggestions in real time"
They seem to be offering something like a browse search terms option.

This is actually pretty cool. It suggests additional searches that change as you enter a longer string. This is a good way to discover some types of variant terms. It can also create some very interesting results. I started typing in my friend Jesus Chairez's name and by the time I got as far as Jesus, it suggested the term "jesusland". This is apparently a reference to the "red states" that I had never heard of. It led to a couple of pretty scary blogs.

This is interesting. I did those silly vanity searches where you type in your name. Interestingly, my name came up as did David R. - but not Sue W. or Sue V. Maybe you are indexed under some other name?

hmm. I got mine and Sue V's as well. Came up with my e-mail page and bio page on msel web site. Maybe it was tired when you tried.
