Yahoo Suggest

Yahoo has launched a homepage feature called “search suggest”. This is similar to the Google Suggest service (a labs product that also made its way to the Chinese Google homepage), and shows you an auto-completion box as you type your search query.

The following table compares some suggestions returned by Yahoo and Google (note Yahoo’s suggestions always take longer to load, but this delay may be on purpose; also note that Yahoo often returns the query you’ve already type as redundant suggestion):
