Instant Search Google: Google Instant Search is Not Working?

Instant Search Google: Google Instant Search is Not Working? – I have tried on my Google search engine to see what the new “Google Instant” looks like but I see the same “text search suggestion” which Google had offered months if not years ago. The new feature, Google Instant is supposed to give you a view of the search results even before you complete typing your desired search.

The feature seems pretty neat but is it really needed by users. When you search online you usually type the full text and then browse on the search results. While typing, the added feature might significantly slow down your browser or eat up memory resources in your computer.

The new feature was unveiled by Google during a press conference Wednesday. Google says that this feature will help users access search results more quickly and easily than ever before. Google VP of Search Products & User Experience, Marissa Maver even called the new feature a “fundamental shift in search.”

According to the official Google blog post

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 most obvious change is that you get to the right content much faster than before because you don’t have to finish typing your full search term, or even press “search.” Another shift is that seeing results as you type helps you formulate a better search term by providing instant feedback. You can now adapt your search on the fly until the results match exactly what you want. In time, we may wonder how search ever worked in any other way

However, how can you see the improve search if Google Instant is not working? How many of you have seen this new Google Instant feature? What do you think of it?
