Google Instant coming to Chrome for Mac

updated 01:10 am EDT, Wed October 13, 2010

Available today on Mac build of Chromium

The Mac beta build of Chromium, the open-source engine behind Google's Chrome browser, has added the ability to use Google Instant, the company's recently-introduced search-as-you-type feature. Based on the speed at which Google Instant went from testing in Windows Chromium to a standard feature in Chrome for Windows, Chrome users on the Mac could be seeing it in the very near future.

Google Instant is enabled on the latest Mac builds of Chromium by typing "about:labs" into the built-in Omnibox, enabling the Instant option, then restarting the browser. Google Instant has already come out of beta for developer builds of Chrome as of today, which should mean that it will migrate to Chrome for Mac in a future update before long. [via TechCrunch]
