Try The New Google Search UI

Posted by madhavkobal on 30/11/2009

While the world must wait until at least January to experience Google’s Caffeine net-generation infrastructure, Marissa Mayer, vice president of search products and user experience at Google, and her team are reworking Google’s user interface.

More than Caffeine, this redesign is sure to drive people who have become comfortable with Google the way it is now — with it’s universal search approach and search options — to varying degrees of rage.

People are slow to embrace change, particularly on the Web, where changes are often frequent. Which is counterintuitive, of course. You’d think Web users would be more receptive to the evolution of Web sites, but as they say, people like what they like. People also will say that Google shouldn’t fix what ain’t broke.

But that’s another post for another day. Today, I bring you the new Google search design.

Or at least, as I have discovered it via Gizmodo and Google Blogoscoped.

Navigate to Google.com and paste this code into your Web browser’s URL address field:

javascript:void(document.cookie=”PREF=ID=20b6e4c2f44943bb:U=4bf292d46faad806:TM=1249677602:LM=1257919388:S=odm0Ys-53ZueXfZG;path=/; domain=.google.com”);

Hit enter, reload or open a new Google.com page and boom, you will have access to the new user interface. The search box is fatter, the home page logo is darker and the Google Search and lucky buttons are super blue.
