Google Quick Scroll Integrates with Instant Previews

If you use Quick Scroll for Chrome or Google Toolbar, Google highlights the sections of the page that are the most relevant to your query. That means you can click on a search result and quickly find the best matches.

Google Quick Scroll now integrates with Instant Previews, so you can click on a highlight from Google's screenshot to be magically taken to that part of the page. It's a lot faster to find what you're looking for, especially if you have to scroll to the bottom of the page.

Google's previews are now available for Microsoft Office documents and presentations. There's also support for Flash, so you'll no longer see a puzzle piece image instead of a Flash object.

  1. it seems that all these new innovations just make the results confusing perhaps this will be G's undoing.

  2. I like this feature. If it is too confusing for someone they don't have to use the extension. I think that the feature makes it a little easier to use +1; it is now a little easier to determine if you like a source without having to bother going back to the original search results in order to mark it. Just helpful, not perfect.
