Google wants you to use its auto-completion powers for more than just searching. With Google Scribe, you can let the web fill out your sentences for you in a dedicated editing tool, or auto-type anywhere on the web with a bookmarklet.
Scribe itself is a neat implementation of Google's auto-complete engine and might be a helpful writing tool for those who feel stuck on certain sentences or phrases or just need to brainstorm a list of common uses. As you type, Google pops down a list of popular completions for your word or phrase, which you can select by hitting Enter for the top-most selection or pressing the number key corresponding to another suggestion.
We've previously posted on how Google's search suggestions can fix your spelling and find software alternatives, and Scribe's just a dedicated editing page for those suggestions. More useful than just the editing tool, though, is the bookmarklet (check the bottom of the Scribe page). Click the bookmarklet on nearly any page with a text box, and Scribe will load into it, allowing you to use the same auto-complete writing in your email, comments or any other web text.
Scribe is a free product to use in Google's Labs section. Tell us about your handy uses for an auto-completing editor in the comments.
