Google on Wednesday introduced a faster version of its search engine called Google Instant that begins displaying results as soon as users type in queries.

According to the company, the feature shaves off 2 to 5 seconds from user searches since it brings up results nearly as fast as it does for its auto-suggest feature. In fact, it will automatically do a search for the top auto-suggestion before a user has even selected it.

Google estimates that if all its users switch over to the instant interface, it will amount to a savings of 11 hours of searching per second.

Despite the instant results, users are still able to use Google in the traditional sense, by typing in a query and hitting the enter key or search button. Users can also opt out of using it on their search pages, or from the Google Instant search itself.
