Google Instant

Recommended Posts

Google Instant is a new search enhancement that shows results as you type. We are pushing the limits of our technology and infrastructure to help you get better search results, faster. Our key technical insight was that people type slowly, but read quickly, typically taking 300 milliseconds between keystrokes, but only 30 milliseconds (a tenth of the time!) to glance at another part of the page. This means that you can scan a results page while you type.

Before Google Instant, the typical searcher took more than 9 seconds to enter a search term, and we saw many examples of searches that took 30-90 seconds to type.

Using Google Instant can save 2-5 seconds per search.

If everyone uses Google Instant globally, we estimate this will save more than 3.5 billion seconds a day. That’s 11 hours saved every second.

15 new technologies contribute to Google Instant functionality.

It doesn't work in Opera, as the video/sound chat, and some other apps from google. Even since they updated the translate page i cannot longer use the text to speech option :(

But i cannot live without Opera now, so i will have to wait to see how things go.

I have not tried it yet, but I did read a piece about how they have censored anything "rude" no matter what your safety settings are.

I tried the instant thing and I really like it, but I hardly ever do searches from the Google homepage. I use the address bar in Chrome for pretty much everything. Maybe they'll get it working in Chrome at some point...That would be nice.
