    Smile Google is absolute RUBBISH Now!

    No matter what I try, I CANNOT turn off this damn Google instant setting!

    I have tried everything including, eventually turning off Javascript on google.co.uk.

    Firstly, they tried to force you in to signing up with gmail, by using a ploy to stop the Google auto background appearing, then thus damn Google instant appreared with predicitve text which just gets on my nerves.
    Then, when you start an image search it default to 10,000 images per page- which you can't turn off!

    Add to that the annoying sponsored links appear before anything in any search now, and this damn "instant" CANNOT be turned off in Firefox.

    Well, I have gone over to bing, and quite frankly it is much better.

    You can turn instant off, i turned mine off last week as it was pissing me off.

    Just go to Preferences and scroll down the bottom, theres an option to turn it off.

    I simply refuse to use Bing because it is backed by the biggest ripoff artist I know, Microsoft.

    Google is at least open sourced and everything is free.

    Google, Microsoft, Apple, News Intototalall =all the same old crap!

    Lesser of evils. that is my take- and Google isn't fairing too well at the present time with their massive empire building!
    NOT good for any of us!
