When you first open google

When you first open google you will not notice anything different. it is when you start typing in the word you want to search, that you start noticing something….for this demo i’m using the keyword ‘nikhil’…

google

When start typing the keyword

you will notice that results are displayed as soon as i have started typing, it gives the relevant results for the words present in the search box as you keep typing, as you can see i have typed only the letter n of ‘nikhil’, it shows the most searched items beginning with n, similarly it will show the most searched items when i have typed the letters ‘nik’ & ‘nikh’ of the word ‘nikhil’, as shown in the images below.

search displayed as you type in the search box

search result displayed as the you type in the box

Also notice as we type in the keyword google highlights in grey of the most searched word of containing the same letters. (not sure if this there earlier)

word highlighted in grey.

google has also provided an option to turn google instant on & off,  this is located right next to the search box as shown

You can turn google instant on & off as & when you want.

At first glance Google Instant looks good, the search results are displayed faster than before. Looking forward to using it more and if there is something else to write about I will update this post.
