Although Google is still one of the fastest search engines in the world, it does still have it’s annoyances. The requirement to search over and over with varying results each time can become tiresome. Each and every results page can come up with something different, and each and every time you may not get the results you want.
I’m sure back in the Google Labs cave, their genius engineers are concocting up some type of real time results, but for now, we will have to settle on a great alternative. And that great alternative is called Keyboardr.
Keyboardr takes all of the behind the scenes Google search results and displays them in real-time on your screen. In other words, as you are typing your search term in their search box, the display below changes to proper Google results. Not too long ago, Google implemented one of their “Labs” products called Google Suggest, that displays suggested results and how many there are.
Keyboardr works in a completely different manner. As opposed to displaying suggested results in real-time, it displays the actual results in real-time.
The name Keyboardr comes from the fact that they have implemented the ability to navigate the results through your keyboard – using your arrow keys to jump from result to result and selecting your choice by pressing enter.
Along with getting Google search results, you will also see results from Wikipedia, YouTube and Google Images.
The engineers with Keyboardr also have plans to implement and integrate services such as Friendfeed, Delicious, Twitter, Flickr, Google Docs and many more.
In the video below you will see exactly how they will use some of these services to allow for friends and others to connect with each other, and find more of what they might be looking for.
The additional features of Keyboardr are great. However, having said that, I think the real beauty of the web app lies in its real-time Google results. When I’m searching for a quick fix or answer, I like being able to quickly search the web or a site without having to refresh with a different results page, each and every time I type something in. Keyboardr gets the job done for me, with very quick and responsive results.
How about you? Do you see yourself using this over Google.com? Are there similar web apps or browser add-ons that have this ability? I’d love to know.
