    This method does not work, as Google seems to want to torture us, by giving us this option, but not really having do anything.

    Even with this method selected and saved in preferences, Google instant is still here.

    The advice above DOES NOT turn off Google Instant PERMANANTLY! It only turns if off for that session.

    If you log back on to Google later, you will find tht Instant is BACK ON and you will have to go to PREFERENCES again to turn it off.

    So far no one have come up with a way to PERMANANTLY turn it off without affecting other features of our browser.
