Yes, Google Is Testing Infinite Scroll Web Results
Google has confirmed that they are indeed testing a form of infinite scroll web search results.
Here is the video:
As you can see, Google replaced the pagination feature from the bottom, where it says, “Gooooogle” and put a link that reads “show more results”. Clicking on that will load an additional set of search results directly below the first set of results.
A Google spokesperson confirmed this test saying, “Google is constantly experimenting with new features.”
Google has previously denied an infinite scroll test in November of last year, blaming it on a Chrome extension. But this new test, seems to be the real thing.
Will this last, I am not sure but we do know Google has infinite scroll on image search.
