Google Results Are Now Instant!

Google Instant is a new search enhancement which shows results as you type. Google is pushing the limits of their technology and infrastructure to help everyuone get better search results, faster .Google’s key technical insight was that people type slowly, but read quickly, typically taking 300 milliseconds between keystrokes, but only 30 milliseconds to glance at another part of the page. This means that you can scan a results page while you type.

The most noticeable change is that you get to the right content much faster than before because you won’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.
