April 12, 2002: Google Mispelling Redirects

When searching for a mispelled term with no results you'll now get a confusingly blank page, which quickly redirects to a corrected one with a notice at the top in red explaining what happened.

An interesting new feature, although more notification would be helpful.

Update: As one reader pointed out my original example no longer returns no results -- it now returns this page! I've changed this to a new example page to fix the problem.
