Google Instant for mobile now available in 40 countries, 28 languages

Google rolled out its Instant search results to mobile users in the US via Google.com last month, but until yesterday, users outside the US were left out of the Instantaneous fun. Google Instant for mobile is now available in 28 different languages and in 40 different countries, so chances are you're probably covered. You'll need an Android 2.2 or newer device -- sorry Eclair users, it's Froyo or...

Google Instant now available to mobile browsers

Google Instant is slowly starting to become available for iPhone and iPod touch users. The feature will at first only be available on Google.com. It's currently opt-out, so you'll have to toggle it by clicking the appropriate option that should show up below the search box (see screenshot). While Instant on mobile should prove useful by not requiring extensive typing to get to the search result...

Google Instant (sorta) comes to Firefox courtesy of an extension

File this one under "a screenshot doesn't do it justice," but if you've been wanting Google Chrome's Instant integration in Firefox, a new extension may be exactly what you're looking for. It's called InstantFirefox, and it does precisely what you'd expect. Start typing in the Awesome Bar, and InstantFirefox refreshes the Google search results below in real time. The InstantFirefox experience ...

Google Instant integration in Chrome already improved -- big time!

I wasn't too impressed with Google's first cut at bringing Google Instant to Chrome. The half-page overlay looked awkward, Google thought I was spamming their servers, and the feature didn't work on local pages like about:memory or chrome:extensions. Just over two weeks later, however, I'm starting to like what I see. Instant now works with Chrome's about: and chrome: URLs -- about:labs now ap...

Keyboard shortcuts make Google Instant even faster

Like it or loathe it, Google Instant is here to stay. Big G reckons that it saves you 2-5 seconds per search, but now Google's pushing ahead with pure keyboard navigation. Of course, you've always been able to select from the suggested search terms using the arrow keys, but now the arrow up and down buttons can be used to skip through the actual search results. Hitting Enter on the desired result...

A list of Google Instant's banned words and phrases

A fantastic list of banned, no-we-shall-not-auto-complete-that Google Instant phrases has been compiled. At the moment there's a list of about 250, but we're certain it will quickly grow as the community prods and probes Google's new Instant search. It shouldn't really come as a surprise that Google has a blacklist for Google Instant -- after all, the vast majority of searchers won't be lookin...

Google Instant launches, searching now 'faster than the speed of type'

That's Google's pun in the title, but by Zeus's greased lightningbolt! I wish I'd thought of it first. Google's big announcement is the launch of Google Instant. I think most of us had hoped Instant would be but a part of today's goodies, but alas! You can try it out by simply heading to www.google.com -- and if it hasn't been activated for you yet, check out our previous post on the topic. ...
