Google today added two features to searches that are performed from Google.com on Android handsets. First, searches will now pull up contextual links in the results. Google uses Rotten Tomatoes as an example, noting that when you perform a search for that web site, select links will appear below the main result to oft-clicked secondary links, such as "What's In Theaters." Google said these contextual links will appear in a variety of search results to help users find the information they want more quickly. Google also added a new experimental feature called Quick View. Quick View adds a badge to search results that when clicked shows a quick view of the Wikipedia page listing about that particular subject/search. Google says this works only in English on Google.com within the Chrome browser on Android devices.
