Instant Google

… or Google Instant, as it’s officially known. Introduced just this week on (and soon to hit other Google sites) It shows you search results as you type, instead of having to wait until you hit Enter. Supposedly, it saves yoiu a few seconds and gets you to your results faster. We’ll see about that. In any case, read more about it from this post on Boing Boing (containing links to other articles about it). Some people have used it already for artistic purposes; this Youtube video, showing animation derived from some Google Instant searches, combined with Tom Lehrer’s song “The Elements“, is particularly good.
