Google.com makes it easier to see Instant Previews of search results. The tweaked Instant Previews and search user interface is a lot cleaner and has a new large icon for Instant Previews, which is displayed only when you mouse over a snippet.

Now, when you click the new icon or hover over the gray bar and you can quickly glance at a preview of the page without having to click and see if it's the page you want as the preview screens are now much bigger than earlier.

Unfortunately, the keyboard shortcut has been disabled, so you can longer get a glimpse of the page using the right arrow.

Google now repeats the title of the page and the URL next to the screenshot, while the links to the cached page and to other similar pages are included in the new enlarged snippet.

The only action that's still displayed is the Google +1 button only if you are logged in.

"Instant Previews have been around since last year, allowing you to click on the magnifying glass to the right of the result to see a visual overview of a page. Now these previews are no longer even a click away: if you move your mouse over a search result, arrows will appear. Hover over them to see a visual preview of that result," explains Google.
