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.

Way to go with the browser sniffing Google.

Apparently works in Opera if you bypass it. Ugh.

You know, it may be that they can't guarantee that all the features work correctly, or will keep working in future versions of Opera. Or that they haven't tested it enough on Opera. Rather than let people take their chances with Opera and possibly have a bad experience, they've just disabled it. I think that's a reasonable thing to do. And it doesn't preclude support in the future.
