Instant Search – The Real Live Search Bing API experiment

If you’d like to see instant results while you’re typing in your search query try out “The Real Live Search” from Long Zheng from istartedsomething – it uses the fast Bing AJAX APIs and the JSON results to give you information as you type.  It’s really neat to see – here’s an example doing a WorldWide Telescope search  The image doesn’t do it justice – try it out yourself.


I wonder if it could be integrated with the Windows 7 via the Federated Search support – much like Long was able to do with the Flickr Search Connector for Windows 7

    I'd like to see Bing do an Instant Search but make it an OPT In feature unlike Google Instant Search.

    There are those of us who don't like instant search but also some who do.
