    Actually no, i think it’s great.

    You can argue about the UI or why it’s called “people also search for” instead of just “related entities”, but as a feature, for me it greatly enhance the discoverability aspect of browsing Google (and hence the internet), i use it all the time to explore new topics and i’ve at times found really useful info there!

    So this is my opinion of course, based on my use case.

      Yes, it's horrendous, especially the slight delay before it pops up, so you are already navigating to click a link and then it moves.

      I just use the ublock thing too.

        I like it. Often I don't know the name of the thing I'm searching for.

          I recently stumbled across this custom uBlock filter from another HN commenter, if you use uBlock origin this filter completely removes that annoying “feature” on google.
