Google has rolled out another update to their search engine results which changes the look of the thumbnail previews (see here).
Unfortunately, they’ve also listened to the guy who’s the top hit on these results. Prior to today, if you hit the down arrow on a search results page you would activate a caret on the first search result. As you pressed up and down, you could move the caret to different results. If you hit enter, the website of the result would open.
No more! Now hitting up and down do nothing, leaving you trapped within the search box. The only way to get out is to hit the Tab key. Not that big a deal? I guess, but the whole point of Google Instant was to save you unnecessary key strokes. They just added one back in.
