youtube instantIf you like what Google has done with Google Instant, then you are going to like this new Youtube Mashup, “Youtube Instant” – http://ytinstant.com/ created by a Stanford university student – Feross Aboukhadijeh.

With the same principle as Google Instant, this new youtube mash up lets you search YouTube videos and get instant results as you type in your search query. Currently only one of the best matched video is returned on the search result page and the video gets played automatically without availability of any sort of traditional YouTube player control (e.g. Play/Pause).

In an interview with AllThingsD, the creator Ferros mentioned that he coded Youtube Instant in 3 hours in order to fulfill a bet he had with his friend.

After the news of this service broke, YouTube’s CEO & Co-founder Chad Hurley informally offered Feross a job via Twitter.

Search.io – A Search Engine with Tabs

Search.io Sometimes when I’m searching for something specific like say a recipe or a person, I end up opening a number of tabs in my browser in order to find the result that I want. Search engines like Google, does make it a little easy to find the top sites that I should go to for any given keyword, however it is annoying to have to open all the different results in different tabs in order to actually get to the information that I need.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could simply type in a keyword and have it search through all other other specialized search sites and directly show you the results?

Well thats exactly what Search.io does! Search.io is a relatively new meta search engine that has the capability to search of sites, group them by topics and then display them in tabs (inside the website itself), making it very simple & easy for you to find the information that you need.

Using Search.io is simple & straightforward, just enter your search term that you would like to search and select your specific area of interest. So for instance, if you are looking for chicken salad recipe you should select “Recipe” and just enter “chicken salad” into the search box and hit GO.

It will automatically open up different tabs with all chicken salad recipes / and search results from the popular recipe sites for you. There are a number of categories that you can choose from – currently they have People, Search Engines, Torrents, Blogs and many more.

To test drive this brand new tabbed search engine yourself, visit Search.io.
