lately google search seem to have interesting new result snippets and I wonder how they generate them.

More specifically one got my attention, see the links "15 minutes - 5 minutes - Timer - E.ggTimer.com" in the screenshot. How can I generate these links?enter image description here

That's some navigation they extracted from the page to use as rich snippets.
One of them is actually a bit "wrong." If you hover over the "Timer - E.ggTimer.com" item, you'll see it's actually a link to set a 30min timer. This suggests to me these were automatically generated, but you'll find information at the previous link for gaining some control over them.

Actaully, those are sitelinks, not Rich Snippets: google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=47334 – Ciaran Sep 12 '11 at 6:53
