Tip: Google Previewing Window

Share

I was searching for something in Google last night and found something that I apparently had not noticed before.  I don’t know if it is a new thing, but I found it highly useful and thought I would post it here.

Google is making it easier to scan through relevant result by providing an in-line preview of the search results.  Look for the little blue triangle next to the top result on a page:

Selecting the result to preview

You can arrow up and down to select the relevant search result, then press the right arrow key to show a preview window to the right with sample selections highlighted:

Preview for the selected result

Preview for the selected result

A nice little feature, indeed.  This will allow users to go through the search results and not bother visiting sites that are designed strictly to garner ad clicks, parking pages and the rest.  I’ll be sure to point this out to my IT support clients in Wichita to help them save time and effort.
