Google Instant is a new search feature that will help you search faster by showing results as you type. Until now, we had to type a full search term, hit enter, and wait for the right results to appear on Google. Now search results will appear instantly and you don’t even have to hit the enter button. Using special technology and infrastructure, Google predicts your search and displays results before you actually finish typing. Moreover, top prediction is shown in grey text in the search box, so that you can stop typing as soon as you see what you need.
So, Google Instant is all about faster web searching and saving time. According to Google, it can save 2-5 seconds per search and if everyone uses it, more than 3.5 billion seconds will be saved a day. That’s a huge number and means more than 11 hours saved per second! Earlier this week, Google Instant was rolled out to users on Google domains in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia. Google Instant requires Chrome v5/6, Firefox v3, Safari v5 for Mac or Internet Explorer v8. It may take some weeks for Google Instant to be available to everyone on Google.com.
