After some testing, Google has finally announced that they will be launching changes to their search suggestions. The key changes include:

(1) Search Ads in Search Suggestions:

sponsored-link-in-suggest

(2) Improved "navigational query" support:

navigational-suggestion

(3) Search Suggestions even on search results pages:

suggest-on-results-page

(4) No estimated count numbers, as you can see from the screen shots above. Here is a screen shot of the old way:

Google Suggest in Google.com?

(5) Search suggestions are now personalized based on your search history and other factors:

personalized-suggest

(6) Google bolds the query words in the search suggestions drop down.

I don't see this feature live yet, but it should be soon.
