Google has stood by its experimentative reputation and has tried to innovate further with its 'search result' features, to impart Google users a more enhanced search experience. Google Blogoscoped has revealed that Google is presently examining a prototype search result that displays a "Search options " link on the Google result bar.
Blogoscoped, elaborated upon the functionalities of this expanded search option, stating, "When you click it, a navigation bar expands to the left side, promising to limit results to pages created "anytime", "past 24 hours", "past week" and so on. There are also a couple of alternative result views to enable; "longer text", "dates and places", "images from the page", and "publication date". "Longer text" shows snippets beyond what Google normally displays in results. "Images from the page" includes little thumbnails."
