Google reveals new look

Google unveiled its redesigned search pages this week, a response to “the increasing power of search”.

The most obvious changes focus on the left-hand side panel of the site, which will now change displaying relevant information to what you are searching for.

This panel also makes it easier to drill into the search. When you enter your search in, you will automatically get all information about that subject but if you want just Images, Maps or News, then you just change the options on the left-hand side.

This stops you from having to switch between pages if, say, you choose the Images tab at the top of Google.

Other changes include the streamlining of some options and slight tweaks to the site’s color and the look of the Google logo.

“The new design refreshes and streamlines the look, feel and functionality of Google, making it easier to pinpoint what you’re looking for,” says Marissa Mayer, VP Search Products & User Experience, in a blog post.

“It’s powerful, yet simple. Today’s changes are the latest in our continuing efforts to evolve and improve Google.”
