I find Google's Autocomplete (or “suggest”) feature very interesting because it seems to have spawned a quite a few by-products. Web Seer is a nice example. You feed it with a couple of prefixes, and it polls Google for all of the suggestions for them and then spews out a simple visual representation.
The screenshot above shows a snippet of the output for “should they” versus “will my cat.” Perhaps that's not the best example because these two searches aren't fully comparable; when I tried “can he be” versus “can she be,” I got some more comparable results, such as “be so cold” for the guys and “be so heartless” for the girls (ouch!).
It's a Flash app, so if you happen to be taking part in the crusade against Flash, it won't work. But on the bright side, where it does work, it's very fast. There's no Submit button or anything like that – it's completely live and on-the-fly, with the graphic updating right as you type.Web Seer lets you visually compare Google Autocomplete results
