Forget Google.com – Try Google Realtime Search

Google Realtime Search lets you search faster and gets results directly on the new Realtime homepage. You can refine results and even pinpoint results by location, and time. See entire conversations and read full threads of conversations to get context about any topic.

Watch this video to get a good introduction to Realtime search.

Try Google Realtime Search right now to test it out. As the update rolls across, you might also use the “Updates” link in the left-hand panel of your search results to get realtime results. Google is getting faster everyday and is now giving search results faster than you can type.

Thats right. Its 404. Google changed the url from

http://www.google.com/realtime
to
http://www.google.com/realtime?esrch=RealtimeLaunch::Experiment

without a redirect!!

The results are totally dominated by Twitter, it could do with having some kind of content filter, but it’s a step in the right direction by Google.
