Wouldn't we lose a valuable research tool when Google gets rid of Google Instant Search feature?

I saw something about this a few months ago but seriously why would Google take this away, other than to make life even more difficult for marketers.

They talk about improving things well I beg to differ.

Bringing it in-line with mobile devices for what, because if that was the case then I would have said due to the restrictions of a mobile device that it would be making it more difficult.

Every now and then a message goes around on Facebook that they are going start charging, well if that ever happened then I would definitely stop using facebook.

If it happens then we find other ways to do the same thing. I know Jaaxy has alphabet soup and I guess with a little thought developing this further could make this feature great and not just good.

This has a lot of people confused.

The thing that we use for the alphabet soup technique is staying in place.

What is going away is search results being displayed as you type.

It may be that Google is ensuring the quality search items a bit more!

No, you'll just have to wait until you've finished typing to get the results.

That doesn't appear to be the case at all.

What I have only just noticed is that as soon as you move the cursor into the search bar the drop-down menu displays with your last searches, and when you type into the search bar instant does
its thing in real-time with Google's suggestions changing in front of you.

That will be changing soon as Google is moving towards being more mobile friendly. https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/26/16034844/google-kills-off-instant-search-for-mobile-consistency
When that happens you'll just have to wait until you've finished typing in your search query before you get the results.

You WILL still get the same results, you'll just have to wait for them.
