Get Your Results In An Instant!

As many of you have probably heard by now, Google has announced a new way to use their search engine. It is known as "Google Instant", and it allows you to search without having to hit the "Enter" key. As you search the results are loaded right on the page you are viewing, as well as suggestions Google gives you on what you may be searching for. You can also use the arrow keys to look at the suggestions along with the possible search results, which will load below. Pressing the right arrow key when a suggestion is highlighted will trigger "I am feeling lucky". Doing this just loads the first result on the page. According to Google, this new feature saves a whole 2 seconds of search time, which doesn't sound like a lot. However, on a per person basis it is quite a bit. You can use Google Instant by going to, or if the other one does not work. If you don't like Google Instant, you can simply turn it off in you Gmail Preferences, which can be accessed at the top right of the search page. For more information, check out Google Instant Overview and FAQ. Happy searching!
