You may have seen the announcement yesterday of Google Instant on the official Google Blog. Instant, they say is "a simple and straightforward idea—people can get results as they type their queries". If you have used Google you will have noticed tha change.
So what's the big fuss about? (Apart from the fact that at present I just find it exceedingly annoying). Well, it's reasonably clever - as they say :"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." Hmmm.
There's a video too:
I'm not sure that the video is anything more than a puff piece and when you look at some of the comments on YouTube such as:
"OK, i need search a Potato recipe......
-Did you find the recipe?
But does it work? Do you like it? Is not having to hit enter a great leap forward in search?
Only you can say.
