Google Does What I Mean

current mood: amused

I just needed to search for something about regular expressions. Without really thinking about it, I gave Google a string including "regexp", which is a common abbreviation for "regular expression"—the other common one being "regex". At the bottom of the page, I found this note:

Tip: These results include the word "regex". Show results that include only "regexp".

Google knows that "regexp" and "regex" are synonyms. I love it.
