I don't care, it's distracting to have to look at two focus points, but .. it works. And it's not extra work. So why bother disabling it. :)

since i use chrome. i rarely get to use it.

however, the new features which bring keyboard shortcuts to google SERPs makes it awesome for me.

Yeah, I rarely use it...95% of the time, I use the quick search in the top right of my browser...not on Google's page itself

The rare times that I do use Google Instant, I like it. It's a little distracting at first but doesn't take long to get used to and see the benefits of it.

I'm not a fan of the new "Instant" search, I'm afraid. I'm starting to lean more towards Bing nowadays anyway.

I disabled it immediately. It's distracting, and I know how to search. The average person doesn't understand how Boolean Search works, so they have a very hard time finding anything. I know exactly how to find what I need, so I don't need this "helping hand" from google.

I use chrome as well, but my search bar defaults to wikipedia, not google.

I type too fast that it doesn't really help me, and the results it gives usually don't match until I finish typing the query.

I know how to search
Exactly. Too many search tools want to help you learn.

Yeah... my friends often ask me to help them find things.

People have said before "if Jaxel can't find it, it doesn't exist".

When I use Google's search, I either just type what I'm looking for and hit enter in Chrome (love that feature) or I use the search bar that's available in browsers. I rarely actually go to Google's site and then search.

Ewww.. never used it, never likely too, I search from my browser not via their page.

Obviously someone has a sense of humour... Instant gratification indeed!

doesn't really bother me either way, I also use the search tool in the corner of my browser more often than not.
