Google is rolling out a new "instant" search feature that automatically displays suggested terms as you type.
The feature is designed to save users an average of 2 to 5 seconds on each individual search request.
Reports indicate that Google Suggest (now called "Autocomplete" as of today) has enabled the search giant to predict common search phrases and reduce the amount of time needed to complete a search.
The improvements also include the ability to show the untyped part of the most relevant suggestion in light-grey text, while maintaining the ability to choose any of the other suggestions.
The new feature improvements are expected to be rolled out to all signed-out users over the coming weeks.
