Is this new?

22 Oct

Maybe this is something that has already existed for ages (like, for 2 years or so), but I didn’t notice it before. When you enter a URL in the search container that doesn’t exist, Google shows one or a few similar URLs.

Nice feature, but The Women in Periodical Publishing?!?

Edit: Thanks Joost, apparently I missed both Barry Schwartz’ and Aaron Wall’s post about this ;)

    That’s new, I think Aaron first noticed that last week.

    That is maybe a week or two old.

    Joost; thanks for mentioning!
    Aaron; I didn’t notice it earlier than today. Must have missed your post ;)

    Cool feature. Especially because some of those people using the Google query field as an address bar might as well not be that skilful with keyboards :-P
