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.

useless waste

I'm sorry to tell that, but really, I don't see the point in all this.

When I type search keywords, (say "dickens"), I'm not interested at all with results of a shorter version of this word - the 4 first letters for example.

I'm pretty sure it will take longer for my human brain to analyse the partial results than to continue typing an pressing Enter.

Moreover, I can't imagine the waste of energy that those searches represent.
10 letters typed : 10 searches launched ?

for what benefit ?

I personnaly disabled the fonction.
