icebraining writes: As Slashdotters like to point out, the new helping features of Google Search, such as auto-correcting spelling mistakes and adding synonyms and similar versions of the terms, can cause problems with certain search queries. To solve that, Google has announced on their blog that a new option called Verbatim, available under the menu "more search options", is being added to their Search product and will be available in the next few days. In addiction to the new option, Search will feature better tuned algorithms that will hopefully reduce the need to use it.
