Google quietly fixed a problem yesterday that bugged at least a few iPhone users -- the results page it returned when searching through the toolbar in Mobile Safari.

In a pre-Tuesday world, Google would return its standard, not-iPhone-formatted results page. Why? I honestly don't know, but personally didn't question it too deeply. It was what it was. I'd do my search, zoom into my result, and be on my way.

That was so 2008.

Now searches through the toolbar return nicely-formatted-for-iPhone results. Just as it should be.

Thanks to DJT for sending this in.
