(launch codename "tomwaits", project codename "Snippets") We have algorithms designed to present the best possible result titles. This change will show a more succinct title for results where the current title is so long that it gets truncated. We'll only do this when the new, shorter title is just as accurate as the old one.

Other highlights include changes in indexing, spelling, sitelinks, sports scores features and more.
