Today, for the first time, searching on google.com I noted that Google "suggests" me the most requested phrases.

I tought I clicked the wrong bookmark ( I have a boomark for googe.com and another one for Google suggest), but in fact the "suggestions" seem the default choice...

I've seen this too in the recent past, but it's not universal - it's still in a test of some kind I suppose. I'm not seeing it today, for instance, not in any of the four browsers I commonly use.

If you go to Google Labs > Experimental search you can ask Google to do this by default (as well as a bunch of other options).

I know that I can choose Google suggest ( [google.com...] ), but today it was the first time I found "suggestion" as a default ....
There was not the logo "Google suggest Lab".

It's right that it's not universal: from my computer at home, everything is normal .....
