While the Microsoft folks are peppering the Bing portal with all the bling-blings to make search enticing and attractive to users, Google is doing the opposite way. Google just launched a new cleaner and simpler interface to its already simple and clean search portal.
So if you check out Google.com right now, what will greet you is the all familiar clean page but now with only four elements initially – the Google logo, search box, “Google Search” and “I’m Feeling Lucky” buttons.
You can immediately type in your search term and click on the appropriate button and Google gives you the search results or if you miss the the other elements of the previous Google search portal, you simply move the mouse and everything will go back to how it was before.
Pretty sleek, although I’m not really sure whether the change is necessary at all. I could understand the need to be different from the rest of the major search engines but the changes are rather useless in terms of search capability.
But then, what else could Google do to improve its search engine anyway?
