Today I found new improvement of Google search result from Google.com, It highlights each listing with soft-blue color when you do mouse-over. This is interest that Google adding more interactive. This may use for increasing the ranking signal and user feedback study for them.

Google has filed the patent of "System and Method for Modulating Search Relevancy Using Pointer Activity Monitoring", was filed on February 16 2005, as Google currently used click-through rates (CTR) as signal. The new patent takes the idea a step further, looking to reorder search results by monitoring when users show interest in web content without actually clicking on it.
What do you think about this? I think it becomes more signals on user feedback and social beside currently strong signal on links.
