Google Testing Google Suggestions on Main Search Page?

A WebmasterWorld thread has two members reporting seeing Google Suggest like suggestions as the default feature of the main search page.

Typically, if you go to, you can type in a query and press search. But these users are seeing an auto-complete feature that you would typically only see on Google Suggest. Here is a screen capture of how it may look:

Can this be coming to the main search results? Possibly. Yahoo does it by default with search assist and they love it. does it also. So if it works, why not port it over the the mainstream?

I just use suggest since I found it and I think it should be offered at least as an option. E.g. with google adsense you can place a search bar on your website, why not offering the option of suggest search bar?
