For (very) long years now, Google has been offering a wide selection of tools aimed at satisfying an ever more modern and connected daily life: Agenda, Maps, Chrome, Drive, Gmail, YouTube, Earth… search tool Search, installed as a home page by many Internet users. And like its other software, Google is constantly refining its web search tool, including today the implementation of a continuous scroll, called “continuous scroll” in its original version.
Google Search opts for continuous scrolling
Thus, the American giant announces adopting continuous scrolling for search results on our computers, as it has already done for the mobile version of Search at the end of last year. Google explains that this will make it possible to browse a total of six pages of results, without the slightest effort, except that of scrolling down the page.
Starting today, we’re bringing continuous scrolling to desktop in English in the US so you can continue to see more search results easily. When you reach the bottom of a search results page, you’ll now be able to see up to six pages of results. pic.twitter.com/xIuVP24FFm

As on mobiles, the change of page is signaled simply by a loading indicator, and the procedure is intended to be faster and more intuitive than clicking on a button “Next“. Google is also planning to add more suggestions to mobile search boxes and ever more information-rich displays for top results.
This new feature dedicated to Google Search (desktop version) is currently being rolled out. However, the latter is currently reserved only for Google Search in English, on the United States side. There is no doubt that Google will take care of exporting it to the rest of the world in the (more or less) near future. Until then, we must still and always click on the button “Next“, or select one of the results pages during a Google search. So be patient.
In another register, Google has also been talked about recently by asking its managers to identify 6% of employees, or nearly 10,000 people, as “poor performers”. For some, the web giant could soon proceed with a massive layoff plan, as was recently the case at Twitter in particular. A difficult period to say the least for the many employees of the “technology“.
