Google “Instant” Up and Running

Posted by in Tech News

Google’s newest search feature, Instant Search, is up and running today.  The new feature will automatically begin searching based on the words you type, saving you time on your searches.  According to Google’s page, the feature will “save you 2-5 seconds on searches”, provide “smarter predicitons”, and give you “instant results”.

“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.” reports the the Google instant page. 

Though they’re experiecing a few techincal problems in getting it to work for everyone, Google says that the feature should be available to everyone withen the next few days.
