Google Prototype With Navigation at Top Left
Amrit stumbled upon a new kind of Google results design prototype
(as far I know it’s not the first time this one has been spotted). The navigation – web, images, video etc., plus an expandable “more” – is at the top left. There are some smoother shades throughout the page, as well as a stronger focus on related searches (e.g. for the query 90210
, Google suggests queries like 90210 cast
or melrose place
above the other results, not just below).
As this overhaul is made up of not a single changed element, but a couple of them, I wonder if there’s any relation to the “Google Beta” rumors? Last month, Ionut of the Google OS blog posted about this bit in the Google translation queue:
Phrase in English: You’re invited to try an experimental version of GOOGLE search. BEGIN_LINK Get Started END_LINK
Phrase in Romanian: -
Translation Help: This is the promo for Google beta.
Not to say that this makes much sense, either: after all, Google came out of Beta years ago...
