Google Instant Search

If you use as your main search engine, you will notice that they have added a new component, the “instant search.”  Here’s how you know what it is:

If you were to type in “puppy stores in New York” before you could even get to “stores” it would start searching automatically with what they “guess” to be your search terms.

I don’t know about you, but this is annoying and tends to cause my computer to get stuck as it searches. 

So here’s the trick, go to the top right corner of and you should see “settings” and “search settings.”  Click that.

Scroll down to “Google Instant” and click “Don’t Use Google Instant.”  Then click save at the bottom of the page.  That’s it, then should work without the instant search!
