    Default Google Instant Search Launched & How to disable Google Instant Search

    Google has launched its Instant Search feature. For anyone interested in the instant search, the page automatically loads results as you are typing a search query. It is meant to make your searching just a tad bit faster.

    For those that would like to disable the Instant Search
    First option: When you are typing you can click the Instant is On link beside the search button and you can disable it from there
    Second option: Open Google Search preferences, and select the option Do not use Google Instant


    "Now if only there were an option to switch the image searches back to the original style

    I don't like the instant search and somehow would prefer to continue using the old search.

    I agree. Seems Googe in its wisdom to try to add new features is actually pushing people away.

    First thing's that I have to go to google home page to use instant search. I dont think anyone does that anymore as most browsers have a separate search bar. Also it doesn't support opera which is my default browser. So I'll be using the old styled search for now.

    Turning off Google Instant is only applied to particular session another way to permanantly turning off google instant is saving those search preferrences to google account.If users don't like Google instant they can try encrypted Google .

    google instant search is great, I like it that it can show the result immediately so that I no need to type more words. but it will stop automatically if network slow
