    on my box, sometimes it works, sometimes it does nothing...mostly it doesn't work...I don't know what makes it kick in yet

    I think it has something to do with my google toolbar, but I don't know...I'm sure most of the people here ahve the google toolbar, and they aren't having the issue I'm having

    This is the thing that if you type "f" it completes it as "firefox" right? :D

    Yeah. It's scary to know what the top search results are for each letter.

    Google censors most of the 'inappropriate' search terms. Try it. ;)

    The SafeSearch option doesn't affect the auto-completion. It only affects the final search results. :)
