Google thinking INSIDE the box.

September 8th, 2010 1 comment

All day today, my inbox has been bombarded with news articles about Google’s freshly launched ‘Instant’ search feature whereby results are returned as-you-type your search query. One particular comment by pmichner caught my attention. It reads:

So if while I’m typing “farthest” I’ll see results for fart?

Well, here’s the answer! Click this thumbnail to see what Google does.

Am I the only person wondering how long it will be before the first flaws of ‘SafeSearch’ are identified and surface? I can just picture it now, some kid typing the first few characters of a harmless search, only to have inappropriate material forced into their face.

I’ll leave that test to others, but what do you think about this new feature?
