This is essentially a new Google page that searches for similar searches, or, if someone wants, every single search down to the time and date (anonymity would be maintained.)

This could help for a number of things: curiosity, statistical research, getting new search word ideas, finding out what the new hippest thing is.

The idea is that most people are completely honest with Google. They plug whatever it is they WANT in the box, and click away. This could be a very powerful tool.

       Doesn't Google already effectively do something like this, by its popularity-based hit programming?

       Maybe, but I don't know of any open source available search databases. I feel like they'd be useful in that form.

       excite.com has searchspy where you can see what other people ars searching but im not sure if its real; i watched the un-filtered one for about 10 minutes and "german hardcore videos" came up about four times.
