“The user benefits of Google Instant are many—but the primary one is time saved. Our testing has shown that Google Instant saves the average searcher two to five seconds per search. That may not seem like a lot at first, but it adds up. With Google Instant, we estimate that we will save our users 11 hours with each passing second,” Marissa Mayer, VP, Search Products & User Experience, Google, has said.

According to Marissa Mayer, Google Instant will become the core search experience on Google.com for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE 8. “We will also be offering Google Instant to our users in France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain and the UK (besides US) who are signed in and have Instant-capable browsers. Over the coming weeks and months, we will work to roll out Google Instant to all geographies and platforms,” Mayer has added.
