Google Instant: Filtered Search Results With Every Keystroke

Today, Google is rolling out instant search to browsers everywhere. Google Instant displays complete search results after every character you type.

A few fun facts from the Google Instant information page:

  • Before Google Instant, the typical searcher took more than 9 seconds to enter a search term, and we saw many examples of searches that took 30-90 seconds to type.
  • Using Google Instant can save 2-5 seconds per search.
  • If everyone uses Google Instant globally, we estimate this will save more than 3.5 billion seconds a day. That’s 11 hours saved every second.
  • 15 new technologies contribute to Google Instant functionality.
