The New Google feature of Google Instant looks quite promising but its something which is not liked by everyone. Atleast i’m not a fan of this service which keeps showing me results till i end typing the Search Query. Hence Google has made sure that you can easily disable this feature from your browser directly. This new feature is getting the same amount of negative feedback like SearchWiki on which we had written a article Disable Google SearchWiki
The new Instant feature shows results as you type which is quite distracting and in order to completely turn it off you can implement any of the following two ways.
From Google Homepage :
When you visit the Google Search page you will find a small option next to the ‘Search’ button which says ‘Instant is on‘ which is a drop down link. Click on this option.
Once you press on the ‘Off‘ option you will be redirected to the same old Google Search where you have to press the ‘Enter‘ button to see the Search Results. This would get the task done but this is applicable for all the browsers when you disable the ‘Instant Search‘ by always clicking on this option. Once you delete the browser cookies the instant option would be back again, which can be fixed by the next option.
Setup under Google Preference :
If you want to turn off this feature completely, then its recommended to login to your Google Account following which whenever you login to your Google account and then access the Google Search page, this new feature would be automatically disabled. Next visit this link – http://www.google.com/preferences.
Here in you will find an option of – ‘Google Instant’ with the following two options out of which you will have to select one :
- Use Google Instant — predictions and results appear while typing
- Do not use Google Instant
Once you select the Do not use option, you will get back to the Default old Google Search with the same old type of results. Apart from this turning off this feature would also not give you personalized results which are based on your previous web history stored with your Google Account.
