Today Google launched a new feature: Instant Previews (this hasn’t rolled out for all users, so you may not see this functionality yet). It is now possible to get a snapshot of each site in your search results before you actually visit the site (just click the little magnifying glass). This could be a useful feature.

You really should upgrade your browser.
We used to make nice little (actually they weren’t little, and as time went on, they became less nice) screens that suggested (demanded) that you upgrade your browser or risk having a less-than-optimal experience (or risk having absolutely no experience).
