Sick of sites that force you to sit through a Flash splash screen intro in order to get to the homepage? Well Google agrees with you and are now offering a “Skip Intro” link to save you.
Philipp Lenssen from Google Blogoscoped first noticed the “Skip Intro” when conducting a search for “yuasa france”.
By clicking on the “Skip Intro” link you will bypass the splash screen and be taken directly to the homepage.
Andy Beal from Marketing Pilgrim has a theory on this new feature.
“At first glance, you might think it’s being triggered because it’s the only initial link on the Flash landing page. However, upon review of the actual web page, the link text actually says “Entrez”-it’s a French site.”
No matter how Google actually does it, it’s great news for all of us who really don’t like sitting through a websites Flash intro.
