I would like to be able to turn off the so-called instant search feature.The above was sent off to Google via its "How can we improve Google?"
Please, I don't want your search engine telling me what it thinks I want and taking me where I don't want to be.
Sometimes, I AM looking for variant spellings and even misspellings and uncommon terms, but this new feature (which I despise) is always messing me up and actually slowing down my searches.
Also, it does NOT work smoothly, so...
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, turn off the damn thing and allow me to do MY searches MY way.
Actually the category was "I have a suggestion or want to share positive feedback."
Well, my suggestion does not offer positive feedback--I find the so-called instant search feature insulting and annoying. It's herky jerky and often freezes up, sometimes crashing my computer. Search pages often stop working, and I have to reload, so how is that an improvement?
But most importantly,
I WANT GOOGLE TO STOP TRYING TO THINK FOR ME!!!I know what I want, and I can easily tell when I have made an error.
Computers and dazzling features are great, but, in the end, the human brain is far more sophisticated than Google seems to think.
How about it, Google???
