Google is experimenting with letting people not only upvote results, but also add comments (incidentally I had that feature at http://findforward.com some years ago but disabled it later because it never seemed to have taken off in any relevant way...).

I didn't see a forum post about this, but this is pretty wild:

Yeah, it's pretty cool but I'm pretty sure it's not new:

Here's the news post on this from last year http://blogoscoped.com/archive/2007-11-29-n17.html – what's new now it seems is the comments box bit.

Oh, and there's some other refinements. Here's a screenshot from TechCrunch:

(I'll adjust the title of this thread to merge the two things.)

"&btnG=Search&swm=1" doesn't work for me...
Any other idea to get the experimental version of Google search?

[put at-character here]Pixelisation have you logged into your account

[put at-character here]Philipp the "Everyones edits", "Review edits" and "Exit edit mode" part seems new too?

This feature is only available for some accounts and it's not related to visits to some web pages. Try following your own advice for a different Google account and you'll see that it doesn't work.
