Google Instant Pages - A speedier search experience

In Google's Inside Search event in San Francisco, Google demonstrated several demos showing how Google is bringing successful mobile device search features to mainstream desktop and notebook PCs thus, saving users time in their searches.

Last year, Google introduced Google Instant, which gives you search results while you type. It is estimated that this saves between two and five seconds on typical searches. Today, Google took the next step for Google Instant: Instant Pages.

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. As you scan the results deciding which one to choose, Google is already prerendering the top search result for you. That way when you click, the page loads instantly.
