Google Removes Instant Previews from the Search Results

Google has removed the instant preview feature from the search engine result pages that enabled the web searchers to have a look at the website displayed on the search results without actually visiting it. Actually it provided a graphic representation of the web page and highlighted the important sections based on the search query.

Google had launched instant previews back in Nov 9 2009 but sadly this feature has been removed.

Why Did Google Remove Instant Previews?

Google has removed the instant preview feature because users were not taking it seriously and Google saw a low usage rate of this feature among its users.

What's New?

The new search result pages will show the cached and share feature under a small green drop down button displayed under right hand side of the website  titles displayed on the search results.
