Sometimes I wish I could award a bounty prize to a comment.
It's called User Experience for a reason. So stop thinking about how you would use it and instead try thinking about how or why others would use it. :) Here's an example: What if I've seen the search results before? And what if I needed to get to a particular result again - but didn't want to click "Next" or ">" a hundred times to get there? What if that result was on the last page? I could just press "Last" or ">|" or what if the result was on the 4th-last page? I could press "Last" or ">|" and then press "Previous" or "<" 3 or 4 times. — AeronJul 22 at 1:41
