If you’re using any modern browser you’d know typing a query in the search box takes you directly to a search engine results page.
But in Chrome you can actually use Google’s instant search feature to make everything that little bit faster by predicting what you’re going to search for.
To turn on Google Instant in Chrome, head to the browser, then the settings page. On the “Basics” page, down the bottom, you should see the box to tick off “Enable Instant for faster searching”.
Check the box, and if you don’t like it, you can turn it off at any time.
