Google Hold on to your security blanket, people, because Google is rolling out a pretty big change to its search engine. Not too long ago the internet was in a shock because Google rolled out a new feature that allowed you to pick a background image for the Google home page, just like Microsoft's Bing. Google went a lot further today, and has launched Google Instant, adding search-before-you-type results to the Google home page.

It is useful sometimes, but too flashy for general use. I like they allow disabling it.

Fully agree. Every 'smart' option needs a disable switch, 'cause there is always at least a condition where AI doesn't bring any good (and it gets just annoying).
