Google Instant not available in Armenia yet, do not be alarmed!

Google Instant search showing results for the search word Yerevan,
with a lovely "Welcome to Google Instant" note that reads:
"Feeling of euphoria and weightlessness are normal.
Do not be alarmed"
Google has started rolling out instant search. It is not available for Google.am yet, but I tested it on Google.com and was quite excited.

"We are excited today to be unveiling Google Instant. Google Instant is search-before-you-type. Instant takes what you have typed already, predicts the most likely completion and streams results in real-time for those predictions—yielding a smarter and faster search that is interactive, predictive and powerful," Google Official Blog says describing the service.


Non-Instant Google search on Google.am
As part of our current rollout, Google Instant will become the core search experience on Google.com for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE 8. Google Instant will also be offered for signed-in users in France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain and the U.K. who are signed in and have Instant-capable browsers.


The same source says instant search will come to "all geographies and platforms over the coming weeks and months." So much for Google.am, not available yet, feeling of depression and increased blood pressure are normal, do not be alarmed! :)))))


Here's also a list of the core features:
  • Dynamic Results - Google dynamically displays relevant search results as you type so you can quickly interact and click through to the web content you need.
  • Predictions - One of the key technologies in Google Instant is that we predict the rest of your query (in light gray text) before you finish typing. See what you need? Stop typing, look down and find what you’re looking for.
  • Scroll to search - Scroll through predictions and see results instantly for each as you arrow down.
