Query suggestions in JSON format (would be usuable in browser search plugins)

Google returns search suggestions when you type anything into the search plugin in a browser (e.g. Firefox). This returns a JSON formatted string that Firefox (for example) can display in a dropdown box. This enables using it as a calculator as well (since typing in math problems suggests the answer) and would make DuckDuckGo a perfect replacement for Google.

Here's an example from Google's search suggestions:

URL
-------
http://suggestqueries.google.com/complet...

JSON Return
------------------
["test",["testosterone","test","test internet speed","testicular cancer","test my speed","testicular pain","testosterone booster","testflight","testament","testosterone pills"]]

EXAMPLE 2 URL (For math prob: ( 23 + 32 ) / 14 )
----------------------
suggestqueries.google.com/complete/search?output=firefox&client=firefox&hl=en-US&q=(%2023%20%2B%2032%20)%20%2F%2014

JSON RETURN
----------------------
["( 23 + 32 ) \/ 14",["= 3.92857143"]]

This is on the list, though not a DuckDuckHack plugin so filing it here.

Thanks. In the future where could I suggest features like this that are not plugins?

You are not alone though!

This is happening a lot and I'm having trouble figuring out why. How did you end up reporting it here?
