Google Search : Google Tests a New Interface

June 19, 2011
Filed under: Featured, Google 

Another day, another Google experiment. This time, Google tests a new search button inspired by Bing and removes the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button from the homepage, probably because it’s no longer useful. Google Instant makes the search button unnecessary most of the time, so Google could remove it altogether. It’s interesting that the new design emphasizes the search button instead of making it less prominent.

Google’s experiment highlights the header of the search results pages and uses gray/red icons and labels in the vertical navigation menu. Another change is that the “cached” and “similar” links are placed in the Instant Preview box, so they’re more difficult to find.

All the icons and images for this experiment are available in a sprite.
