In the Google Chrome dev channel (version 10.0.612.3) when you go to about:flags there is the option to enable instant type, and there are three "modes":

  • Verbatim
  • Predictive
  • Predictive no auto-complete

What is the difference between these?

From this article here.

  • Verbatim: This will load results in your browser window as you type them.
  • Predictive: This will load results in your Omnibox and load then in your browser.
  • Predictive no auto-complete: Search suggestions will appear in a drop-down but not in the Omnibox.

Please avoid link-only answers. If the site goes down, the answer becomes useless. – Sathya Jan 3 '11 at 4:47
