Have you noticed anything different about searching Google lately? On September 8, 2010 Google announced the gradual rollout of Google Instant, an enhancement to its search engine. Google Instant speeds up search time by predicting possible search results while you are still in the process of typing in your search terms. If one of the predictions is what you are looking for, you can just click on that item in the list, without entering the remainder of your search. For example, if you’re searching for macaroni salad recipes, you need only type the first four letters “maca” into the Google search box, and “macaroni salad recipe” appears below the search box in a list of clickable links (see image below) along with search results. Google claims that Google Instant “can save 2-5 seconds per search.” You can find more information about Google Instant, including FAQs and a short video introduction, at http://www.google.com/instant/.
