Google to bring instant search to Chrome 9
At a live event on Tuesday, Google announced several new features for its upcoming Chrome 9 browser. Chief among them is the addition of Instant Search to the Omnibox address bar. Users get the same instant suggestions as on the web, which appear on the fly in a search page below the Omnibox.
Regular sites will also return the web address of a commonly accessed site based on users' browsing history, changing the page as they type; a single key press is sometimes the only one necessary.
Most of the features are in development versions of Chrome or else are coming soon. Chrome 9 doesn't have a set release date, but most stable releases now arrive every six to eight weeks. [image via Engadget]
