Google Testing New Spell Correction In Search Box & Again, A Plea To Post When Such Experiments Happening!

Nice catch spotted via
Threadwatch,

Google’s Testing New Dictionary Feature
at Justilien.com has news and a
screenshot of Google testing a new dictionary feature that corrects your
spelling within the search box. But c’mon already, Google. As I
wrote before,
if you’re going to test things, tell us!

I mean, we can assume this is
something you are doing — but what if it’s some program that Justilien Gaspard
didn’t know he had installed doing this? That’s not likely the case, but save us
another round of everyone wondering what you’re doing until eventually some
official word gets out on Matt’s blog
or via GoogleGuy having to confirm things in a search forum, as we’ve had
before.

You’ve got a blog — tell us these things though it. Or start a new Google UI
blog that those who care can watch.

Postscript: Turns out this is a function of the Google Toolbar.
