Enhance navigation for search results Answered

UPDATE: Kiteman points out in the comments that easier to use navigation as described below is available if you first do a search and then click the Graphical Search link on the search results page.
I hereby modify my suggestion to "Make graphical search the default, or adopt the graphical search navigation for the default search results."

================

When I search the site and get multiple pages of hits, the only navigation option is a row of small linked numbers at the bottom of the page, like so:
1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10
It takes an unnecessary amount of dexterity to navigate to the next number and click it to move to the next page of results.
Two suggestions:
1) Increase the font size of the linked numbers so they provide a bigger target area for my mouse pointer.
2) Add a "Previous" link to the left of the 1 and a "Next" link to the right of the 10, to provide big, juicy targets for the most common navigation needs.

If you click the "graphical search" button, which appears after you use the search box in the top-right of the page, then you get exactly what you ask for.
