Google [GOOG] has made a major change to the way their search engine works, as we saw yesterday, as soon as you start typing a search phrase in Google, the results start to automatically appear on the same page without you having to hit the search button.
Google is calling this feature ‘Google Instant‘ and they are rolling the feature out over the next few day to users who are signed in to a Google Account.
Google Instant is a new search enhancement that shows results as you type. We are pushing the limits of our technology and infrastructure to help you get better search results, faster. 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. This means that you can scan a results page while you type.
The new Google Instant seems to work very well, search results are delivered must faster than before, according to Google it can save between 2 to 5 seconds per search, check out what Google has to say about it in the video below.
