Google Jump To Links Help Navigate Long Pages

GoogleJumpTo Google's latest tweak to its results is simple but useful: a 'jump to' link that takes you directly to the section of a site which contains the information you're looking for.

While this won't make much difference if you're just looking up a site name to see if it's a .com or .com.au site, it can be handy if you're dealing with textually dense pages, or long forum discussions where the relevant information is well-buried. You have to click on the link next to the words 'Jump to' to go to that section of the page; clicking on the page title retains the classic Google behaviour of going to top of the specified page.

Google's results have seen quite a few tweaks this year, including expanding the amount of text presented in its results, including sub-links for Wikipedia articles and expanding the size of its search box. That last change proved controversial, but if you don't like the new look it's easy to fix.
