Google Blue Triangle Arrow

google-blue-triangle-thumb.pngI noticed that Google now puts a little blue triangle / arrow next to the first entry of a search list. I wondered what good that was. Was it indicating the “best” find? I thought that is what the first position meant.

Then you can press the enter key to go to that choice. So it is a way to choose a result without having to point and click.

In the snapshot attached, you can see where I’ve moved the arrow down one choice with my down arrow.

Now that I use a trackpad both on my laptop and at my desk, I don’t mind pointing and clicking so much, because I just gesture and tap.
