Google Gets Even More Instant: Launches Instant Previews

This morning, Google made a strikingly useful visual addition to its search results with the launch of Instant Previews. When a user clicks on the magnifying glass icon that now appears next to each search result, a snapshot of the page loads to the right, and previews for the other results preload in the background so they’re, um, instantly available upon mouseover. The overall effect is very efficient–it’s much easier to tell whether or not a result is relevant.
