We've seen Gmail go through many changes over the years — some big (like the complete redesign from last year) and some small (like auto-translation) — but recently Google's been trying to improve search in the webmail service. The company introduced new contact search features last week, and now autocomplete has been tweaked. Gmail will now use the vast stores of information it has at its disposal from your inbox to give smart autocomplete suggestions. For example, if you type "lax" into the search box, it might suggest "lax reservation" if a flight itinerary to LA is sitting in your inbox or archive. Search has long been one of the many strengths of Gmail, but it can't hurt to see it improved a bit more. Google says the new feature will be rolling out for English-language users over the "next few days," with other territories getting it in the coming months.
