RE: Google Suggest
Might as well chime in, seeing as my Google-fu is pretty strong. Wink

I'm under the impression that if you dissect the the address bar of your search results, you'll find that all of your Google-stored preferences have been appended in the usual manner, with ampersands. I've long since abandoned Google's preference, due to that cookie nonsense, and just store my desired appendages in my Google shortcut (bookmarklet, registry entry, Proxo filter, whichever way turns your crank). When I search, my Address Bar entry looks like:

g "bozo the clown"

Where "g" is short for Google, and whatever text that follows becomes the search term/terms. Quotes, OR (must be in caps), negative (the minus sign tells Google to ignore the following term), site specific qualifiers, everything that Google allows in the front page's Search box can be put into that text string - it'll all work!

I daresay, since I don't use Google's front page, the Suggest "feature" has never come up for me, so I don't have a way to get the necessary term. Howver, 43unite links (in a post above) to a page that does show the term, so my work is already done. Smile! If you include "&complete=0" in your stored search string, you should be good to go.
