Google smart download link

Check out the “download” and “screenshots” links!

Am I just slow or is this a new feature for Google search?
I did a search for “Handbrake”, a free Mac app, and it came up with the above results.
There were special links for “download”, “snapshots”, and even “beta”!

Is the Handbrake guy adding special, Google-friendly tags to his site?
Or is Google taking another step towards omniscience?

About rae

I'm a long-time Mac and iOS developer. I'm also a big fan of Ruby on Rails and relational databases. I tend to work remotely, in my basement with occasional trips to the office. I'm also a big videophile, both TV and film, and can't wait for a good, inexpensive home 4k solution.

    VLan didn’t get the treatment, though.

    Nice touch, I will admit.

    Next, Google Skynet.
