: Google's New Look

Google's revamped their search results, and the new look is just horrible. It's not widescreen friendly, and just adds to the unnecessary clutter on my screen.

Pity they won't let people revert.

Google shmoogle. I've been using Yahoo and (gag) Bing more and more of late. Occasionally Altavista and Webcrawler for *****s & giggles.

Yahoo is even worse, and Bing is just depressing. Sadly, nothing holds a candle to Google in terms of results. Pity they don't have a good design team.

Yeah - I'm not seeing it either. Maybe 'cause I get the Google (http://www.google.com.mx) site? Not rolled out everywhere yet? Screenshot?

Make that three of us. I see nothing different.

The refinements are minor, but other than that it still works well for me.

Screenshot added...

Looks like a combination of Yahoo and Bing.

Took me a minute this morning to identify why the Google page was bugging me. Just like their hideous YouTube revamp, it's driving me away from their products.

Looks like they reverted back? Google search is nearly identical to what it used to be. At least from the office. At home it looked similar to the screenshot last night.

Google Canada is messed up, while Google.com is the same.

Decided to check it out - just for fun I searched "Google Search Layout"

This was the top result: 'Minimalist, whimsical' Google search given Bing-like overhaul ? The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/05/06/google_search_page_overhaul/)
