> enables "instant" style interaction between the user agent's search
Assuming the user agent automatically loads a url that is triggered by
a user key stroke, e.g., typing "g" results in
"http://www.google.com/", the instant-style interaction is almost
there already for certain urls. These instant-style urls would include
what the user typed -- perhaps as a query parameter.

For example, a user agent might request these pages as the user types:
http://www.google.com/search?q=g
http://www.google.com/search?q=go
http://www.google.com/search?q=goo

Here, the results page shows the new query and updated results on
every user keystroke.

These instant-style urls can also avoid refetching and rerendering the
whole page if the user's input shows up in the #fragment and the page
detects onHashChange.
