Google saves you a click with continuous scrolling in search

(Pocket-lint) – Google knows that clicking from one page of search results to another is no cakewalk. So it saves us a click or three thanks to continuous scrolling.
If you’re lucky enough to find the page you want on the first page of Google’s search results, you know you’re going to have a great day. For everyone else, clicking from page to page can be surprisingly infuriating. From now on, anyone searching will be able to enjoy beautiful continuous scrolling.
However, there are one or two pitfalls. The first is that you need to be in the US to benefit from continuous scrolling, at least for now. On the other hand, the feature is only available for people who use the English language, which is probably the biggest problem for some. We hope that these two points will be corrected as soon as possible.
Starting today, we’re introducing continuous scrolling to the US English desktop so you can keep seeing more search results easily. When you reach the bottom of a search results page, you can now see up to six pages of results. pic.twitter.com/xIuVP24FFm-

You can see how it all works in the tweet embedded above, with Google saying you’ll be able to see up to six pages of results without having to click anything. Scrolling to the bottom of the first page brings up the next set of results, as you would expect. It’s also been the way things have been working on mobile for quite a while.
