I hate it. Now I have to turn it off before I can do the search?? And, once I turn it off it keeps coming back and then I have to turn it off again. Ugh! Why do they do this??

I don't want it.
I didn't ask for it.
Take it away!

It hurts my brain.

Google seems to think we want their custom bullshiat. I don't want the frakking thing to look like Bing and I sure don't want instant search either. Stop it, Google!

Funny that it bothers you so much. I don't even notice it.

I don't know what the big deal is, really. I read about this "instant search" thing, but when I go to Google, it works just like it always has. What is supposed to be turned on to get it to work? Or do you need a Google account?

Doesn't bother me in the least, I look at what I'm typing in, not all the stuff spewing below it.

"Instant search" as in the box of word-strings that appears below what you're typing as suggestions to what you're looking for?

If it's that, you can click on Search Settings at the top right of the Google main window, then scroll to the bottom to Autocomplete and choose Do not provide query predictions. Side note to this: if you have any sort of browsing hiccup, for some weird reason the setting easily reverts back to the query prediction thing.

If it's not that, I'm curious because I don't have any other kind of new blecky stuff when I use Google.

Well, that has been going on for a long time now....when you start typing in a query, it starts rattling off a different list of possibilities that changes as you type. Nothing new. Happens in Bing and YouTube, also. So what's the big deal?
