So, I'm sure you all have heard about Google's latest product called Google Instant. If you're tired of waiting for that fraction of a second for your search result, this is the search engine for you:
Using the new system, as a query is typed, the search box immediately jumps to the top of the search page, and a constantly changing list of suggested pages appears. If the user finds the right site, they don't need to finish typing or hit "enter." (Source)
Basically, Google tries to predict what you want based on what other people search - and serve up the results faster than you can type out the full query.
The Official Google Blog notes:
The user benefits of Google Instant are many—but the primary one is time saved. Our testing has shown that Google Instant saves the average searcher two to five seconds per search. That may not seem like a lot at first, but it adds up. With Google Instant, we estimate that we’ll save our users 11 hours with each passing second!
That's all fine and dandy - but I say let's bring on the new bragging game: What's Your Google Number? How many letters does it take for your blog to come up as the first result on the new Google Instant?
Neatorama is 4 (NEA brings out Neatorama in the search suggestions, but a full NEAT is required to bring out the blog in the search result). That's pretty good, but not as cool as 4chan which comes out with just a "4."
