Blue Triangle on Google Instant Results

Discussion in 'Google' started by used_cisco, Oct 1, 2010.

    Anyone notice the blue triangle on the first result of Google? It's a bullet point on the left of the first results. Has this always been there? I'm thinking its a way to visually entice people to click the first result.

    What do you think?

    The blue triangle is meant to be for keyboard navigation. I think its the dumbest thing since its much faster with a mouse.
