Google Suggest

Quote:Google is rolling out that horrible Google Suggest feature to Google.com. I've had it since yesterday. It is driving me nuts. A thread at dslreports security forum claims the ONLY way to disable it is through Google preferences. I have NEVER allowed Google a cookie and never will! I have no intention of allowing Google to profile me. Google Preferences cannot be used unless you allow Google a cookie.

Others said they like it.

Currently Suggest is activated at the .com/.it/.fr frontpages. I just found the corresponding cookie field, so i think i could modify our faked Google cookie, which overrides the Google default settings in Standard Mode and above, to turn that off.

You could still activate it (on any Google search, not just .com/.it/.fr) via the upper right "Autocomplete" link. You could also make "Suggest" your default search, by saving a bookmark/shortcut/search-module like http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1 , or similar.

Up to you! Smile!
