New Google Instant shows search results as you type

Tired of waiting the tenths of a second it takes to get Google search results?

Google promises it'll get faster.

The search giant on Wednesday introduced Google Instant, which will give users suggested results before they're even done typing.

"It's not quite psychic, but it is very clever," said Othar Hansson, a senior software engineer at Google.

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."

Google Instant will begin rolling out on most browsers to users in the United States on Wednesday and be introduced afterward in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and other countries.

If someone doesn't like the feature, they can disable it from the search page.
