Earlier shortcuts:

  • Up/Down arrow: select another suggestion from the suggested list
  • Right arrow while selecting a suggestion: I'm feeling lucky
  • Enter/Esc/Delete: ignore the suggestions and find the results for your query
Today, you can navigate through search results by simply using your UP and DOWN arrow keys! Once you found what you want, hit the ENTER key.
