Google held a media event today.
Google unveiled today Google Instant. Google Instant is search-before-you-type. Instant takes what you have typed already, predicts the most likely completion and streams results in real-time for those predictions—yielding a smarter and faster search that is interactive, predictive and powerful.
The user benefits of Google Instant are many says Google. The primary one is time saved. Google's testing has shown that Google Instant saves the average searcher two to five seconds per search. That may not seem like a lot at first, but it adds up. With Google Instant, Google estimates that they will save their users 11 hours with each passing second.
As part of Google's current rollout, Google Instant will become the core search experience on Google.com for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE 8. Google will also be offering Google Instant to our users in France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain and the U.K. who are signed in and have Instant-capable browsers. Over the coming weeks and months, the search company will work to roll out Google Instant to all geographies and platforms.
