Google Streaming Search

By accident I fell into the streaming experiment from Google. Looking at the homepage the search box is huge and the logo is too. When typing a search query it takes me directly to the results without having to click on search or hit enter.

Next to the search box you see a option 'Turn off streaming' Maybe related to the doodle and to the search event tomorrow.

[put at-character here]WebSonic.nl Does the suggestion dropdown menu hides the first result(s)?

As you can see in the screenshot, it doesn't.

[put at-character here]TOMHTML No it doesn't. Strangly when you click the "X" you get a blank result page.

If you go to the next page, you loose the experiment. Basically Google has saved the most frequent searches and their results for page number one. If you type a letter, it shows you the top results for the most frequent word with that letter ... There is no strain on Google servers. That's the trick.

Alex K have a good point.
Either way it's amazingly fast and finally centered!

<< As you can imagine, searching even before someone types isn’t easy—which is why we are so excited today to be unveiling Google Instant. Google Instant is search-before-you-type. Instant takes what you have typed already, predicts the most likely completion and streams results in real-time for those predictions—yielding a smarter and faster search that is interactive, predictive and powerful.

But why a bigger logo on the homepage?

maybe because of the bigger search box

or maybe because of larger monitors
