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.

Wasn't that impressed

When running Google "Instant," typing was FAR slower and a lot of results completely irrelevant to what I was looking for came up... it was like bringing the efficiency of IE8's per-key find command to the formerly-clean Google interface. Maybe it's optomized for Chrome... either way, I opted out.

I hope Google Instant isn't turned on by default for the non-logged-in user.
