Answer mining google addon

Alongside the search results have a text of top rated answer (or result)
  [vote for,

[edited] When searching for best something or other or lowest price, you don't want to read the whole page till you get to the result...

So: in some other halfbaked way, make a community based addon that shows you a summary of the bottom line in the discussion and rates it.

Your web search will look the same but you'll also have a bottom.line summary next to it to decide if you want to click it. And what ever happened with the google voting for results we used to have?

Of course it will be abused by SEOs but afaik we'll have to live with that.

       Oh. I expected a "captcha" request that would require you to google for an answer to a question and then enter it. It would function as a mining device to increase the sum of human maybe-knowledge.

       I have always thought there should be the 'Google definitive line' for a range of useful things. Just as you get when you Google "3 + 7" or "300kg in lbs".   

       So for instance, the google search 'jquery each" should have this in the 'definitive line' at the top:   


       jQuery.each( collection, callback(indexInArray, valueOfElement) )   

       EXAMPLE: $.each([ 52, 97 ], function( index, value ) { alert( index + ": " + value ); });   


       Having a user-select/vote mechanism crowd- sources the most useful, hopefully. Bun!

       Google has this, though it finds the answer automatically rather than relying on humans to summarize.
