Instant Preview feature is now available with Google searches for Android & iOS
If you’ve been doing some Google searches on your computer, then you’re probably familiar with the Instant Preview feature that basically shows you a preview window of a page when you roll over the link with your mouse.

Well, it appears that it’s coming to the mobile scene for devices running at least Android 2.2 and iOS 4.0. In fact, Google announced today that its Instant Preview feature is available to those mobile devices that meet those criteria. Basically, all you have to do in order to use Instant Preview is to tap on the magnifying glass next to your associated search results. From there, you’ll be transitioned to a new layout that displays the thumbnails of the sites side-by-side to one another.

Granted that some might believe it to be an insignificant new feature, but when you take into consideration the amount of data being processed by going back and forth through your results, it can very well save you on your monthly consumption allotment. Check it out now!

Hasta ahora, Google, no había dado peso dentro de su búsqueda al diseño web barcelona. Sí a la estructura de la página y su contenido. Ahora ayuda al usuario, previsualizando su diseño y creo que es una opción muy válida para la persona que busca información.
