New Delhi: Google's I'm Feeling Lucky Button is as old as the search engine itself and for the first time in 14 years that the button has undergone a major change.
The I'm Feeling Lucky Button lets users bypass Google's search engine results page and instead go directly to the first search result's URL.
Earlier this month, Google quietly added new features to the I'm Feeling Lucky Button, but this is currently limited to the Google.com domain and is expected to be rolled out to other Google home pages.
"When you hover over the I'm Feeling Lucky button, it spins to an emotion and clicking on it connects you to a page that reflects that emotion," Google said in a post on its official Google+ page.
Now in addition to the default I'm Feeling Lucky text on the right button bellow the Google search bar, Google has added eight other options: I'm Feeling Stellar, I'm Feeling Hungry, I'm Feeling Trendy, I'm Feeling Wonderful, I'm Feeling Playful, I'm Feeling Artistic, I'm Feeling Puzzled and I'm Feeling Doodley.
Each of the emotions generate different results:
I'm Feeling Stellar (displays Google images of the outer space)
I'm Feeling Hungry (searches for restaurants in the vicinity)
I'm Feeling Trendy (directs to Google's Hot Searches page)
I'm Feeling Wonderful (leads to the Google World Wonders Project)
I'm Feeling Playful (takes user to an interactive Google doodle such as the one for PAC-MAN)
I'm Feeling Artistic (points to the Google Art Project website)
I'm Feeling Puzzled (goes to the A Google A Day website)
I'm Feeling Doodley (takes user to a Google doodle page)
