Google Instant Search



Released this week, Google Instant is a new search mode that shows results as you type what you are looking for. This functionality is already available for Google’s domains US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia.

If you’re not located in these countries, stay tuned. Google will be spreading it to the rest of the world very soon. But, even tough, you can already try it out for yourself, no matter where you are. Hit the button below and you’ll be redirected to Google’s global domain (.com). Then you’ll be able to follow this guide.

So, let’s get started. Google Instant search is only possible because of its 15 new technologies used in it. So to start using Google Instant, you’ll first need to have a decent and updated web browser like Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer. If you don’t, please update or download a new one, you’ll be doing a good thing for web developers too.

Now that you have an updated browser, go to Google.com, log in with your Google Account and you’re all set.

To know if you are really on Google Instant, you’ll notice that Google’s logo is bigger, or you can just try typing anything. As you type, the results page will automatically load, not needing to hit the “Search” button or even “Enter” from your keyboard.

In my opinion this is the best creation of the year from Google. Don’t you think? According to them, Google Instant can save 2-5 seconds per search, that’s 11 hours saved for second in the hole world!

Just in case you don’t want to change the way you search right now, you can simply turn off Google Instant in your Google Account’s Preferences page.

Feel free to leave a comment below! I’ll try to reply to all of them as soon as possible. :D

    This is why Google stays ahead of Microsoft and Yahoo. You have to be first to the punch. Another tips is when you begin typing just hit the space bar to get the suggestion for the word your typing to auto complete.

      Exactly. I think Google has too much power comparing to Microsoft and Yahoo. The auto complete feature is also very cool, it represents even less time needed for searching. Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate.
