GOOGLE’S new Instant search engine means consumers can finally start using the fraction of a second it used to take them to get a result.
The company estimates the average user performs 12 searches a day, meaning they will soon have more than nine extra seconds to devote to work or leisure interests.

“I think that might actually be evil.”
