Today, search giant Google introduced a new version of its search engine interface—Google Instant. This new interface provides real-time suggested results as keywords are entered into Google.
Google Instant now allows users to refine their search terms faster to find the result they are looking for quicker. As users type in new keywords, the page results update in real-time to display the results for the new keyword phrase. This change will reduce the need for natural language search, meaning that users are likely to lessen searches like "How to ..." and search for more specific keyword phrases.
Google Instant is starting to roll-out to users on Google domains in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia who use the following browsers: Chrome v5/6, Firefox v3, Safari v5 for Mac and Internet Explorer v8. Although Australia is not included yet in their initial roll-out, Google is deemed to continue adding new domains and languages over the next several months.
