Google Instant is a new way of using Google's search engine, by displaying results as a user types in their search term.

 

The feature was announced back in September, it uses the existing search suggestion feature, while providing an auto-corrected suggestion in grey within the search bar - without hitting enter, users are provided with an instant search result based on what they have typed in.

 

Google Instant was available in the US at the time of launch - but Google waited a few weeks before rolling the feature in localised domains such as google.com.au and google.com.nz. Google confirmed today that Australians should be able to use the feature in the next few days.

 

Of course, with things like this - users can find a way around it, before today you could just use google.com instead of google.com.au to be able to use Google Instant.
