I think it's pretty cool.

Distiinct lack of porn, however.

It's just a fancied up version of Microsoft's Form Complete, or whatever they call it. Whatever.

It's neat, but I don't see it as being plausible without massive server farms like google has. Every character you type sends a request to a server to get those suggested results to popup. Neat, but ultimately probably not particularly useful for the web.

Agreed. It's like blinking text: looks cool for about a second the first time you see it and then is just annoying.

I think it has its uses. For example, you aren't sure what, exactly, to search for or how to phrase it. It lists the most common searches as you start typing yours out. I know Google already suggests proper spellings but I think it could still be useful.

I've used it a few times and like it.
