Hi all,

This week's poll question is the new Google Instant search feature. Discuss here what you think of this evolution of search technology, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

I don't like it.

I didn't like it when they added the "drop down" below the search field and I don't like that they show the hits before I'm done entering my search string.

I find it distracting. Let me finish and give me my results. I don't need their suggested search strings or hits.

Entering what I want to search for on my own isn't all that hard.

The one thing I do like is that they check my spelling and either give me the results for the correct spelling and/or ask me the "Did you mean:" question.

I'm not seeing any Instant results yet...maybe because I'm on IE8?
IE didn't let me play with Google's balls last week.

Google Instant or Suggest is fine as long as they don't place people who pay to be listed higher or sooner than those who choose or can't afford to pay.

When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it.
