YouTube Adds Search Suggestions To International Sites

As you can see, it doesn’t show the most results at the top but rather sorts it some other way, maybe by search volume? Does Google Operating System use a Google function to return the suggestions, e.g., http://suggestqueries.google.com/complete/search? hl=en&ds=yt&json=t&jsonp=callbackfunction&q=QUERY.
In any event, you can disable this feature in the “Settings” area.
