Google Dots

Google is testing showing colorful dots, a blue, red, yellow and green set of dots, to help users understand different search result elements. When you click on the dots, it launched an "about this result" box to help you understand what that search feature does.

Valentin Pletzer posted this on Twitter and showed how this works, here is his screen shot:

Google Dots Learn More

As you can see, it launches this "learn how search works" box where you can learn more.

I have not seen this myself.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
