Yahoo have recently switched on a new semi auto-complete function in their search box, similar to what you get when using the Google toolbar. Presumably the suggestions will be based on popular search queries, though obviously this could potentially be an opportunity for Yahoo! to let people bid to be in this auto-complete function…? A few examples of the suggestions generated include:

Typing in "Car Insurance" suggests:
cheap car insurance
tesco car insurance
aa car insurance
car insurance
quotes
churchill car insurance

Typing in "Mortgage" suggests:
mortgage calculator
mortgages
buy to let mortgages
mortgage rates
halifax mortgages

and interestingly, typing in "best search engine" suggests:
best search engines
best search engine results
the best search engine in the world
best search engine resource
google best search engine
