Google Instant Provides Faster and Smarter Searches
The world’s number one search engine recently launched a faster and smarter way to perform online searches, Google Instant.
The world’s most popular Internet search engine is about to get much faster and smarter. Google Instant, which officially launched at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on Wednesday, September 8th 2010, is a powerful new search engine enhancement that speeds up the search process. Instead of waiting .12 seconds for your search results to be displayed, the new enhancement now provides instant gratification!
When a user types a few letters into Google’s search box, Google Instant displays immediate search results as you type. It’s as if the search engine is reading your mind or anticipating your query before you type it. There’s no need to hit that pesky “enter” key any longer. An algorithm anticipates what the remainder of the search query may be and displays popular search results as each letter is typed. Results of the predicted query are displayed in the search box in a light grey color. Ads are also included. Users may also be able to search instantly using the browser address bar.
For example, if a user types the letters “tele” into the search box, the algorithm automatically predicts the user is searching for “television.” Search listings and advertisements for television are displayed unless the user types in other letters such as “telephone.”
