Google’s New Look

May 21, 2007

Last Thursday, Google unveiled their new universal search, complete with a change to the look and feel of their website. Now when a user searches Google, not only are web results returned, but other search results (e.g., news and product results) are also returned. What's most convenient is the fact that these additional items are inserted quietly amongst the web results, not directly above or below them. This new search paradigm is interesting, and it will be interesting to see if it holds on. I particularly like the subtle changes Google made to their look and feel, with that slick little menu bar running across the top of all pages. Having direct access to all the various search types is very handy.

I didn't realize that the new bar was at the top for all users, even people not logged into their Google account. I noticed the change one morning last week. I didn't like it at first, because it looked so plain. But I am liking it now, I like how it has the same look on all sites in the Google domain. I guess it doesn't matter if I like it or not, once they update something, you better get used to it.
