Google launches Instant search feature saving 3.5 billion seconds a day

Google Instant predicts search behaviour by suggesting and finishing keywords or phrases typed into the search box.

According to the Google Blog, the new service provides “dynamic yet relevant results, predictions of the rest of the query in gray text and scroll-throughs on predicted materials to get a wider spectrum on searches.”

The new feature, which required Google to invest in new caching systems and a compatible page-rendering JavaScript to match on users’ typing speed, is said to save between two and five seconds per search, saving more than 3.5 billion seconds a day across the world.
