i heard on the radio that google will soon guess what you are searching for and find the sites automaticaly. so if you type in "co" as if you were going to write computer forums, it would automaticaly find sites beginning with co. as you continue your search i.e "com" it will refine the search and so on until you have either got the correct site or have entirely wrote the search out.
i hope you follow that.
it could be an irritation or a help. i think they call it predictive searching?

They have been bringing in a few Firefox Programmers. Its possible - but its also more possible that they won't.

Google have good ties with Firefox; a Google Browser may push into Internet Explorer's numbers but it would also push Firefox's Numbers - it wouldn't be worth it.
