Big announcement from Google today as the search juggernaut reveals its new real-time results on Google.com. As you type, results appear automatically below the search bar, so you can more quickly find what you're looking for.
Google Instant is being rolled out as we speak, so in case it's still not working for you, check out this video introduction:
According to The New York Times, Google has estimated that its new results will shave 2-6 seconds off each search. That's a cumulative 3.5 billion seconds — or nearly 1 million hours — saved per day.
I'll especially be curious to see how this new approach is incorporated into Web browsers and Google mobile apps. From the company's statements today, it sounds like we'll find out in the coming months.
So what do you think? Impressed with the new results? Find it too distracting?
And most importantly, got any ideas on how the world should use those 1 million salvaged hours each day?
