Both the option to open results in a
new window and query refinement remain available on the power search page.
The user interface of the power
search page was also updated to create a better user experience.
The page was re-designed to help clarify search preferences, and make overall
navigation easier. Similarly, the result pages produced by the power search
have undergone an update and have been optimized to load faster.
