Google’s just announced Google Instant! They say it’s going to transform search forever—making it faster, better, stronger.
It’s predictive search…
Should you activate Google Instant Search, you’ll start seeing search results as soon as you start typing. You’ll also be shown a range of possible queries in grey to refine your options, all before you ever hit the “Search” button.
Google estimates that Google Instant will save people an average of 2-5 seconds per search. The reason? We read faster than we type, and predictive search pretty much takes typing out of the equation. If every Google user around the world switched to Instant, we’d save 3.5 billion seconds a day, or 11 hours per second.
When Google Instant is activated, the right arrow key acts as the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button.
