Google Quick Scroll will be welcomed by any Chrome user who
does a lot of Web searching, which means pretty much any Chrome
user. Normally, when you do a search on Google, after you click a
search result to go to a Web page, you’re on your own. You’ll have
to scrounge around for the search term you typed into the Google
Chrome extension Google Quick Scroll solves the problem with a
very nifty feature. When you click a search result in Chrome, and
go to a Web page, Google Quick Scroll pops up a small window at the
bottom-right of the screen, showing you the text on the page where
your search term appears. Click that window, and you’ll jump
straight to the spot on the page where the term appears. If it
appears multiple times, you’ll see multiple listings in the window.
To make the Quick Scroll window go away, click the minus sign on
Note that Quick Scroll won’t appear every time you click on a
search result. If the entire page is about your search topic, for
example, it won’t show up, and it may not show up if the search
term is right at the top of the page.
Will Google Quick Scroll change the way you use Chrome or the
Web? Certainly not. But it will speed up your searching, and that’s
a good thing no matter what browser you use.
