So, we have had some time to get used to the concept of instant searching on Google.
I like it. More for the centralized layout largely. On a 27” display, left aligned sites do not feel nice. Google search results now are easier on the eyes and more accessible.
The interesting question now is… Is Google considering bringing this functionality to Google Desktop? It makes a lot of sense to have it on their desktop search solution.
Plus… If Google provides an optional integration of Google Instant with Google Desktop… It would make our computing lives a lot more fun… And scary of course.
Google could in fact offer it as an extension for their Chrome browser and make it work from the omnibar. That would be like using an Google powered layer on top of your operating system.
