How to Disable/Turn Off Google Instant Search
Google Instant is just announced by Google, which shows search results as users type their search term in the search bar. This is definitely a useful feature and saves time too, but there may be some users like me who wish to disable Google Instant.
Google Instant can be easily turned off, following 2 ways below:
1. You can turn off Google Instant by clicking the Instant is on link next to the search box on any search results page, and selecting the Off option.
2. To permanently disable Google instant, visit your Preferences page. Scroll down to Google Instant and select the “Do not use Google Instant” radio button. Then, click the ‘Save Preferences’ button.
