Google is driving the way we search but in doing so it is not improving the experience for experienced searchers who are faced with irritating alternative options, "Do you means", etc.
Would it not be better for Google to spend more time educating the many millions of people who still have no real concept of what KW search is? It is not exactly that complex but many people still don't know how to do it properly.
At some point in the future when everyone does know how to search effectively they can just concentrate on improving the results. This day will come since I would assume that school kids are now being taught how to do Internet search as part of their curriculum?
Meanwhile they could provide (and direct people to) a specialist training program and Internet search teaching aids in Google that are much better than those they have at present. If you Google "using Google" you will see that third party websites offer better teaching resources than Google does.
They should have the resources to create the best teaching aids.
