Is Google down search query now has an autocomplete

What happens if you google Google? Well, if you ask if it is down, it answers you.

If you have used the internet to search for anything, you are probably familiar with the autocomplete function of many search engines.

It tries to pre-empt what you might be looking for or suggests search terms based off popular queries from other users. Sometimes it comes with hysterical and downright strange results.

But it can also be useful for answering questions. Google’s autocomplete often answers the question before you have even completed it and without you having to leave its UI. Like this, for example.
