Google searches faster than you can type

A couple of weeks ago, some of you might have noticed that Google quietly introduced some new icons for there range of services. Hmmm. OK.

Updated, smoothe Google icons

But today, they’ve done something a whole lot more interesting – the Google search engine now features “Google Instant“. This means that not only does Google try to complete your search term and make suggestions as you type, but now it can also populate the search results list in real time. Crazy!

Google Instant in action

You can toggle it on and off, if you find it too disconcerting. I think I will be leaving it on for now, though.

    For some reason, this is only available on Google.com, not google.co.uk.

    Next question – what’s the search button for now, then? 🙂
