Explode Google Results With Sounds

Google added a new opt-in experiment for search results: SearchWiki with sound. By now you might have noticed you can click the “x” next to a specific result, resulting in an animation of an explosion as part of the SearchWiki feature (this is the image file). After hitting the Join button on the new experiment, you’ll additionally hear a sound during that explosion (recorded by Google co-founder “Sergey Brin himself”, as Google says). Organizing the world’s information one gimmick a time...


Update: If on the other hand you don’t want any SearchWiki feature at all because you think it clutters results, you can disable it via a user script (you need to have the Firefox add-on Greasemonkey installed, or use Opera). [Via Ionut.]
