The lightening fast search is now faster with its latest avatar known as Google Instant. Supported by Chrome v5/6, Firefox v3, Safari v5 for Mac and Internet Explorer v8 Google Instant helps you search faster by displaying the results as you type.
The most obvious change is that you get to the right content much faster than before because you don’t have to finish typing your full search term, or even press “search.” Another shift is that seeing results as you type helps you formulate a better search term by providing instant feedback. You can now adapt your search on the fly until the results match exactly what you want. In time, we may wonder how search ever worked in any other way.
Faster Searches: By predicting your search and showing results before you finish typing, Google Instant can save 2-5 seconds per search.
Smarter Predictions: Even when you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, predictions help guide your search. The top prediction is shown in grey text directly in the search box, so you can stop typing as soon as you see what you need.
Instant Results: Start typing and results appear right before your eyes. Until now, you had to type a full search term, hit return, and hope for the right results. Now results appear instantly as you type, helping you see where you’re headed, every step of the way.
Personal Opinion: I just loved Google Instant as it at times showed the results that interested me. And at times its just fun to stumble. It definitely saves time and I have always been a fan of things that help me save time.
Would like to know you opinions too on Google Instant.
