Search engines are an important asset to genealogists.  GOOGLE has a new 
feature that may be of interest to you.

You can now do search using a "slide show" system by going to 

Each slide offers a quick view of the source page.

I can envision many advantages of this.  However there can be some 
disadvantages as well.  For example:

If your search using the standard system happens to hit on a pornographic 
page, you could skip over reading it by recognizing the content from the 
brief description provide.  With the slide show, the main page will open.

Also, every page on the slide becomes part of your history record in your 
browser as a page visited.  You may not want to have such an extensive 
record on your computer.
