One Site to Instantise Popular Web Services

A few days ago Google unveiled an awesome new feature in Google Search – Google Instant.

Google Instant search enabled seeing results as-you-type and was ridiculously fast in displaying the results. It wowed everyone including yours truly.

Inspired by Google Instant, a lot of web developers started applying this to various services like YouTube, Flickr, Google Maps, Twitter, etc.

A resourceful programmer named Tom Denholm created a website called Instantise to house all the services that used this feature.

It is so great to use so many of these popular services with instant results popping up. I have bookmarked Instantise and it is going to be a very hard habit to kick. You gotta love the credits in the site that reads
