Someone else in my "Windows Live Network" had posted something on this a few weeks ago, but I just saw it. Doing a search for a current project I was scrolling through the results and noticed a strange graphic appear to the right of each search result… it looked something like:
The vertical line with a diamond centered within it. What could this be? Well I think its a very handy little feature. Normally the search results read the pages "description" element and display that, which can be misleading. So I moved the cursor to the diamond and a new layer displays to the right and it simply (but cleverly) displays a more realistic snippet of the links contents. I have highlighted in yellow the text I am referring to, it doesn’t really display with a yellow background.
Now I just wish all of these podcasts and radio shows who claim to be all about technology would stop defaulting to "just google it".
