The new Google Instant can cut 2-5 seconds off of search time.

This new Google feature shows your search results AS you type. It also provides smarter autofill suggestions, making it easier to find exactly the sort of results that you are looking for.

The main reason for the decreased search time is that people tend to type much slower than they read - having instant results can save you up to one tenth of the time it originally took to look after you typed!

Google estimates that if everyone uses Google Instant globally, they could save more than 3.5 billion seconds daily!
