Instant Search will make browsing faster by working in the background to compensate for slow page downloads, Google said.
“Instant Pages can get the top search result ready in the background while you’re choosing which link to click, saving you yet another two to five seconds on typical searches,” Amit Singhal, Google fellow, said on the Google blog.
As you scan the results deciding which one to choose, Google is already pre-rendering the top search result for you. That way when you click, the page loads instantly.”
Google is using the relevance technology developed to improve search results to select the page to pre-load. “Instant Pages will pre-render results when we’re confident you’re going to click them,” said Singhal.
Instant Pages feature will be available in its next beta release of Chrome, although anyone wanting the service now can try the developer version.
Google's announcement also focussed on access technologies, with the company promising speech recognition in desktop searches running through Chrome.
According to the company, Chrome users will soon see a microphone in every Google search box. "Simply click the microphone, and you can speak your search," Google said.
