Ever type a random search into Google and watch the system auto-complete exactly what you were looking for? Now there’s a hint that Google could soon add even more predictive technology to its search page. A sharp-eyed blogger noticed some software code that suggest the new Google Now predictive personal assistant feature could be available on any web browser.
