Apparently, Microsoft is A/B testing a new annoyance in the Search box…search highlights. They appear as colorful little icons related, I guess, to different content types. When one clicks in Search and it opens, half the box that displays shows results related to these “highlights”. Apparently, Microsoft thinks that when one goes to search, one is looking for vague suggestions rather than the thing one is looking for. Microsoft’s war against useful search continues. Luckily, they can be turned off.
