(Newser) – OK, show of hands, how many of you ever actually used the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button on Google? Yeah, us neither. And the feature has gotten extra-useless now that Google displays results near-instantaneously as you type. So Google today rolled out a quirky replacement, or rather, a quirky series of replacements, SlashGear reports.

Now if you mouse over the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button, it will roll through a series of options like a slot machine before ultimately bringing up something like "I'm Feeling Trendy," which shows recent popular searches, or "I'm Feeling Hungry," which brings up nearby restaurants, or even "I'm Feeling Stellar," which brings up Hubble Telescope imagery (get it?).
