Google understands Ashkenaziss

When you search Google for the word "Shabbat", it also finds pages which don't include "Shabbat" but do include "Shabbos".

See for example the following search.

Pretty cool, and I wonder how many other examples of this exist. And if this is hand-coded or if there's an algorithm to find search terms that are determined by users to have the same meaning.
