Every once in a while the Google labs display something really cool (like the Google desktop search).

Today I ran into another cool Google tool called "Google Suggest".

Google Suggest basically looks like the regular Google home page but with one difference: when you start typing in your search in the search field you automatically get an auto completion of suggestions for what you are typing!

Not only are the suggestions pretty accurate but what's more amazing is the speed that they are displayed.

Totally on the fly, as you type!

Not only is it very simple and cool, it's also very useful.

Here's a post by the Google employee that created Google Suggest during his 20% free time (Google allows their employees to devote 20% of their working hours to any project they choose).
