Google's playing with the idea

Google's playing with the idea of displaying thumbnails of the pages that come up in search results. The more I think about this, the better I like it. Sure, it'll slow down load time (I imagine they'll let you switch it off if you want), but thumbnails'd be a great visual cue about the nature of a link, a way to identify sites that are too banner-laden or otherwise pointless to visit.Link Discuss (via Meerkat)
