Yahoo! follows the path of Google. They have introduced Search Suggest on Yahoo.com. Getting suggestion based on what you have typed or what you are typing is not a new concept. But it is totally new for Yahoo. Yahoo! launched this feature in the Yahoo! Toolbar in Firefox sometimes back and one can get benefited from this tool from the Firefox 2 search box .
With this latest feature one does not have to type whole words into a query, and it will give similar queries automatically to shorten your searching time. Now one can get results for their queries more quickly.
It looks a lot like Google Suggest, but there are some obvious differences between Google Suggest and YahooÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new Search Suggest. Yahoo! is more concerned with a head match, though not exclusively and it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t give result numbers. The nice thing about the suggestions made by Yahoo! is that they are not obtrusive. It means if you already know what you are searching for, then you can overlook the suggestions without getting them in your way. One can 'disable' this suggestion option by selecting the disable button from drop down menu. And, if you want it later, just reinstall it by selecting 'more' above the search box.
So, Yahoo!'s Search Suggest comes with some interesting features. To know more about the features click here.
