I'm a user of OpenDNS that intercepts phishing attempts and resolves incorrect addresses. I was wondering if google already has the capability to have such a feature. Right now, I have to add change DNS on my network to use the service. But since google has PageRank that "sees" every site you visit, it could also intercepts phishing attempts and resolves incorrect addresses. Phishing attempts are already taken care by IE7 and Firefox, the latter even uses Google servers to check. As far as resolving addresses on the fly, Google could add that, right?

Yes, i was aware of that. But I was wondering if google could automagically correct an address i type. For example, I type ww.google.cmo and i get corrected to the right site: www.google.com
