Google adds Instant Preview to search

Google announced Instant Preview, which give users a previewable image of each search result. As of today, the graphics will appear if users click on magnifying glass icons to the right of individual search results, said Raj Krishnan, a Google product manager.

While Instant Preview is designed to provide graphical previews of all search results, it will also at times highlight the most relevant parts, as well as where the search term appears on the page. If a user is looking for a chart or list, they'll be able to see if one appears in the preview.

Krishnan said a Google survey showed that people who tried using Instant Preview reported being 5% more likely to be satisfied with the search results they clicked on.
