Google gets even Instanter

Google got a bunch of good publicity out of its instant search feature when it launched a few weeks ago. It turns out that people find pressing 'enter' after they enter their search really stressful...

Anyway, the search giant isn't satisfied yet (to be honest, we don't think they'll be satisfied until they can beam search results straight into your brain). Today it's turning on Instant Previews. Go to Google.com, type your search, and click on a result - not on the link, but anywhere around it. Bing! (Heh.) A preview of the site you want pops up, instant-like, on the side of the screen.

It even shows you where in the page your search term appears.

It's pretty nifty. Not seeing it yet? Give it a few hours - Google say they're rolling it out worldwide today.
