Caffeine Is Live
A careful reading of the cited materials reveals that Caffeine has nothing to do with either the data captured/indexed or the SERP algorithm itself, but rather is a new processing platform that is speedier than the old.Not Just Live But Instant Search Results Being TestedYes, they call it a "new indexing system." No change to ranking factors. Rather it's a significantly increased ability to crawl faster, index more quickly and store more, etc.
The end of SEO and long tails?
Very interesting reading, especially the comments:From a birds eye point of view, this is very simple if you know the model view control pattern invented by Norwegian Trygve M. H. Reenskaug.
The ranking algorithm is as I understand it the same. Google has only changed the view. Some mean it is more user friendly some not. The majority of surfers will most probably think it makes Google faster and better. More advanced user may see it as a disadvantage and will turn it off.
If it is not made for the Norwegian browser Opera a lot of people will simply not use it because:
They will stick to their favourite browser
that some people like me think is the most secure browser.
It will have search effects for surfers of the involved browsers, simply because you search differently. It does not imply the end of SEO. Only the presentation of results has changed so far.
How to make Google Instant work in Opera
Google browser sniffing and the Open Web
2. The responsibility of a company that has as it's motto not being evil.As well as being a valuable partner to Opera, with the release of Google Chrome, Google has also become a competitor. We welcome that as more competitors means more innovation, and less likelihood that the Web will be dominated by one single vendor.
However, now Google has become a competitor with its own self interests in promoting its own browser, it brings new responsibility.
Finally, we see in practice what some of us may have thought when Google launced their own browser and became a browser competitor. As an economist, I have always thought that American anti trust / competitive laws are stronger than European. Are there information in the news that indicate the opposite? It should be easy for the programmers at Google to deliver instant search by default or...

P.S. The reason for the down thumb of this thread is that now Google have rolled out a new platform that by default discriminate between browsers.At around 2pm, Google announced the final straw.
I'm starting to feel like an unwitting test subject in a global experiment conducted by Google, in which it attempts to discover how much raw information it can inject directly into my hippocampus before I crumple to the floor and start fitting uncontrollably.
That afternoon, it unveiled a new feature called Google Instant. It delivers search results before you've finished typing them. So now, if I visit Google and start typing my own name, it shows me links to Craigslist the moment I hit "C". When I add the "H", up pops the homepage for Chase online banking. By the time I've spelt out "Charlie", I'm presented with a synopsis and review score for "Charlie St Cloud", a film starring Zac Efron. Add a "Br" and Charlie Brown gazes back at me.
