From PC Mag: YouTube is introducing new ways to help people find relevant content. The video-sharing platform this week began making its search page more visual, with chapter browsing and automatically translated captions.
Most YouTubers are familiar with the scrolling list of thumbnail search results, but one image often isn't enough to gain an understanding of a video's content. With that in mind, the site launched video chapters directly in the YouTube search page.
