Google Result Previews

I always enjoy a bit of usability testing, and Binary Bonsai does not disappoint. His interaction disaster area for Google result previews illustrates the shortcomings of Google’s new search feature in a pleasingly entertaining yet brief video.

I’ll cite his description of the search feature first, as he expresses it better than I:

Google recently introduced a preview layer to their search results, which allows the user to not only preview the page before going to it, but also see the actual string highlighted on that page. A nice idea, wrapped in horrible interaction design.

Enjoy the video, Google Result Preview from Binary Bonsai!
