Google's instant cafe

This is a new revolution in Google's trends.As always google has proved itself as "trend setters"and are of course unique also. With so many search engines being in tough competition;Google still has maintained its monopoly and is still aiming high!So what's so different about "Google instant"?
                Google claims that people take 300 milliseconds to type and take only 30 milliseconds to glance throughout the page searched for. So by introducing google instant ,they are trying to reduce the time taken for typing and making it much faster. We type just a letter of the word to be searched ,and it gives us lots of options related, which would obviously be most appropriate.Just start  typing and you can see predictions right in front of you,just at a click.Its like a  Hindi saying"chutki bajake'.Similar to how the kids say A for "apple" ,B for ball..,..this says .."Amazon';AOL,Apple,etc..''I typed my name 'rajashr' and wow! it was at the first few  in the list showing as "Rajashree prasad' with face book details and blogger details!
                                                               Introduced on September 8th, this is now available to users in USA ,UK ,France ,Germany ,Italy and Russia and will  soon be extended.It has some additional features like "safety guard" for violated contents ,which could be turned on while usage ;getting automatically' turned off' ,when the Internet is slow .The guided predictions help you find out what is needed ,when you don't exactly know what you are searching for ;and also the most related search item is highlighted .Also the related matter appears only with 2 or 3 letters of the word and you can stop typing as soon as your related matter appears. They would soon introduce this feature to be accessed through cell phones also.

Nice post. It is very nice Google came out with this feature. Google is excellent in everything except their translation services.

Raji,

It takes time to read also if you are doign it right. Most people glance and don't read. For me reading means understandign the contents clearly - literally and hidden meanings. If 'writing' means researching the topic, referring other sources - Google Instant cannot help.....it is hard to replace BRAIN...hopefully computers don't do that.....

That's hundered percent true .computer is slowly replacing over books .But as usual there are certain unique things which cannot be replaced !same in case of books;and this 'instant' is just for searching ..the later part of 'reading" depends on us .yes as you said most of them just glance ..which shows no "substance".

We used to call it as Google devta in the college as it gives answers to every question we have. Unlike god.. it depends on the way you ask.

Google is doing a lot of innovations daily and its really good. Let's see what they have for the future.

This is good feature launched by Google, but I see a slight delay before result really appears in the search page. It will be interesting to see if they launch this feature in India, where bandwidth is not as good as US....

raji said...

yes that's absolutely true..let's see them launching this in india and how this works.
