Google Speeds Up

Tired of waiting for your Google search results? Well, Google read your mind! According to the CNN Tech article “New Google Instant shows search results as you type,” Google rolled out Google Instant in the U.S. yesterday. As you type a search into the Google search box, it will suggest results you might be wanting. If the right thing appears you can just click it and quit typing. What a timesaver! According to the article,

Google says the average web search currently takes about 25 seconds: nine second to type it, less than one second for Google to return a result and 15 seconds to pick the best result.

They say Google Instant will shave two to five seconds off of that time.
