Google Finds Ways to Search Faster and Without Typing

How fast is fast when talking about search? Google thinks it can be even faster — and easier — and one way is by eliminating typing altogether, at least in some cases.Google users will be able to search by talking to a computer or dropping an image in the search box, the company said Tuesday at Inside Search, an event in San Francisco. Google will also pre-load the Web pages it predicts users are most likely to click to save two to five seconds during a search.

Perhaps Google should change the wording of its “Guess it for me” button from “I’m feeling lucky” to “I’m feeling psychic”. The search giant has unveiled a new feature that will predict which page a user will choose from a list of search results and begin fetching its data – even before they have clicked on the link.Designed to shave between 2 to 5 seconds from the overall search query time, “Instant Pages” builds on Google Instant, introduced in September 2010, which produces a page of search results before the user has finished typing their query or pressed the entry key.
