Google Search keyboard shortcuts

When Google removed the Google Instant feature from search in July 2017, keyboard shortcuts for navigating the search results unfortunately were also removed. However with help of a Chrome extension, search results can be navigated easily using arrow keys.

Google Search
This extension is simply named Google Search Keyboard Shortcuts. Install it from the Chrome Web Store and just use following keys to navigate between search results.
⭾ Tab

Next result

or
↑   Shift + ⭾ Tab

Previous result

or
⤶ Enter

Go to current result

You can enable Vim style keyboard shortcuts (J for next result, K for previous result and / to focus the search box) under Options.
Type anything to go to the search box again.
The selection arrow only appears when you use arrow keys or Tab, so until you use the keyboard, extension isn't visible (except it's toolbar icon, which can be hidden by right clicking over icon and selecting Hide).
