Google has chosen the second answer (which has the highest upvotes but is not the answer accepted by the user), skipped over some of the answer’s text, and shown me the last half of the answer along with the example code. I’m seeing this second answer because of what I searched for which you can see in bold in the snippet.

I definitely like where this is going but I’m still going to click through to the page which is the first result anyway.

On another note I’m glad they finally included the audio tab feature in the most recent release of Chrome so I don’t have to click through 20 tabs to find that audio/video I want to get rid of.
