Turn Yahoo! Search Assist Off

All of the major search engines now come equipped with a search assist function that gives you a list of possible search as you type in a query. For example, if I’m on Yahoo! and I want to do a search for the super-popular game, Angry Birds, the second I type in “Angry” a slew of  search strings starts listing under the search box.

Voila! No more Search Assist! You can turn it back on by following these same steps and clicking “on” again.
