Thumbnail previews on Google Search

Google seems to be doing a lot these days. After Google Instant, it has come up with another intuitive (though not much innovative) page results thumbnail previews feature. This is probably another attempt to enhance search experience for users or (perhaps a move to beat Bing). Note Bing is already offering similar thumbnail previews of webpages on search results pages. Google thumbnail previews are although a little different than how Bing displays its previews. The larger thumbnail is shown as soon as you hover the mouse over a search result. A somewhat similar functionality is already offered in image results where a larger preview of image is displayed after clicking.
