Yesterday Google has officially launched the intelligent version of Google Search named as “Google Instant“. The new search facility will save minimum 5 -1 0 seconds for every search and display the results in real time while user will type any character. The new system will automatically guess the word and display in suggestion box. We have showcased the leaked video of such search functionality few weeks back ( Have a look ).

Some of us have been pretty impressed with the new technology. “With one keystroke, “w,” you’ll instantly get your weather forecast,” wrote our own Ben Parr this morning. “Wow.” Google search god “Matt Cutts” explains why these UI change will help search faster :

“If we want to get people answers and solve their problems faster, we can help with that by improving our UI to help you formulate queries more quickly (and then doing a bunch of hard work under the hood to answer that query too). Google typically returns search results in milliseconds, but it takes several seconds for you to type a query. In other words, the limiting factor on a typical search is you. With predictive search and instant results, you can often get the answer you want much faster.”

However, some of the analyst feel other way. The new search facility will attract the processing at client side unlike the traditional one which happens on server side. Due to this fact, the load and search results processing & display will highly depends on the users system capabilities, configurations and other app which user will be using at the time of search. Most of the users generally don’t use the system for search alone. There will be multiple apps which consume the resource of the user system and additional process of instant search will increase the load on the system.

Anyhow, there are people who have different set of opinions towards the new Instant search facility launched by Google. We would like to ask from our readers what they feel about new search technique.

Do you think Google Instant Search really adds value to current search envoirnment ?
