Google Now Returns Search Results as You Type

September 15th, 2010

GoogleGoogle recently unveiled a new feature for its search engine: search results are displayed as you type. The expectation that it will accurately predict what it is you’re typing and display the appropriate results well before you finish, thus saving two to five seconds per search. Here at Chad’s News, however, we must be typing too fast, because we find the rapidly changing screen text to be very annoying. This is one feature that got disabled immediately.

Note that this behavior is different than the old Google, where it displayed suggested search strings—you actually get the search results as you type.
