Here is an idea for Google Suggest which I sent to the team at Google Labs…
Very often, I use Google to verify the spelling of certain words. Usually, I rely on Google’s internal spell checker (“Did you mean:…”) and then I compare the number of found pages to determine which spelling is the most widely used one.
As “Google Suggest” displays the number of found results as I type the keyword, maybe you could create “Google Spells” which displays the corrected spelling as well as the number of found results. That way, It’s very easy to see the most correct answer at first glance.
Maybe this could also be integrated into the Google Toolbar and also the forthcoming Google office application… Slogan: “Use a world wide audience to spellcheck your text documents”
Happy Holidays and all the best for 2006!
