3 Reasons To Love The New Google Instant

posted 30 Oct 2010, 07:31 by Sam Mbale

Wouldn't you love to see results appear instantly as you
type, helping you see where you're headed? Wouldn't you love
to stop wondering which search terms to use? Wouldn't it just
be great to have someone (or something) guide you every time
you do your search?

Well this is what Google Instant does. And I love it!

What is Google Instant anyway?

This is a great new search enhancement that shows results as
you type. Google Instant "combines predictive search with a
real time visualization of the results of that search."

It's great because it displays what it predicts you are
searching for, allowing you to not only see your results
faster, but also see results along the way AS YOU TYPE!

Google shares an interesting insight, "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."

So what's so great about Google Instant?

Prior to pressing "search" or "enter" or even before you
finish typing the term or phrase you're looking for, you get
to the content you're looking for MUCH FASTER! How cool is

Why we think it's super

1. Save time with super fast searches.

It saves you time because it predicts your search and shows
results BEFORE you finish typing! Indeed, in the words of
Google itself, "The user benefits of Google Instant are
many--but the primary one is time saved." Their tests
reveals that it saves the normal searcher 2-5 seconds per

2. It's a super guide for the clueless.

Sometimes, you're not sure what you're looking for, right?
Well, with Google Instant, smarter predictions are made,
helping guide you in your search. Google's prediction
appears in grey text directly in the search box, so you can
now stop wondering (and typing!) as soon as you see the
right word/s.

3. It gives you speedy, instant results.

It used to be that you had to type a full search term, hit
enter and wait for the results. But now, with Google
Instant, simply start typing and results appear right before
your eyes!

You may already have Google Instant up and running, but if
not, don't feel left out; Google did say that it's going to
take a couple of days for the service to be available to all
Google users.
