How do I get google to show searched words highlighted on cached page?

Google used to show searched words highlighted on the cached page. Is there anyway to bring that back?

Thanks,
yeto

I no longer see a "cache" link in the search results. I can only see the cached page by using the cache: operator - so there are no search words to display.

place mouse over the page you want to see, slide to the right to the double >> (arrows) and then when a picture of the cached page appears, move up to the "Cached" or "similar" link and click.

no comment on "user friendliness" :(

<added> If the page is at the top you have to look very hard under the adds on the right to see the double >> but they are there </added>

Thanks, Nancy. I think I used to know that, back when Previews were first introduced. It's familiar now that you explain things.

Now that I've tried it, I DO see the query terms highlighted. @yetoyeto - are you sure they've vanished for you? If so, are you using google.com or some country code version?

This is the link I use: https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0

When I type in www.google.com it redirects to www.google.de -- I am in North Carolina.

Thank you for taking the time to reply,

The redirect is a bit funky - it looks as though you're logged into your Google Account and they have you on record as preferring google.de.

Even when I try google.de, I still see the query terms highlighted in the cahced page.

Do you think it might have something to do with my browser? I am using IE9 with Windows7. Also, google.com is no longer redirecting to google.de. I didn't change anything.

Thanks for your help,

Yes, the user's browser may very well factor into differing experiences. Google has long used browser detection to test various user responses to a wide range of scenarios that they can create.
