On September 8, 2010, Google released Google Instant Search which enables users to view search results as they type. Instant search also offers a list of keyboard shortcuts to help people more quickly navigate a Google search page.
- Go to the Google homepage,.http://www.google.com.
- Log into your account.
- Try any of the following keyboard shortcuts:
- Up and down arrows - Scroll between possible search queries.
- Tab - Completes what Google thinks you are trying to type. For example, if trying to get a weather report and you press "w", pressing tab will fully enter "weather" into the search box.
- Right arrow - I'm Feeling Lucky. However for this to work, you must have selected the search term by pressing the down arrow to have confirmed one of the search queries under the search box.
- Esc - Temporarily disables Instant Search. It resumes when you start typing again though.
- As of September 8, 2010 this will only work for logged in users in the USA who are using Chrome, Safari, Firefox or IE8. Google plans on expanding this to other geographies with a few days and to other browsers and mobile users within months.
