A lot cleaner, ay?

This must be rolling out right now. The old one is still available on some servers:

216.239.59.104/search?q=cache% ...

The new text is a lot more streamlined. I've just noticed the old one says, "Click here for the current page without highlighting." and yet "Click here" isn't actually linked. How bad is that for usability?

On a related note perhaps, Google's cache feature was broken for me lately on sites I tried. There was the usual Cached link but the result was the kind of "not found" page similar to what you get when you provide the wrong key in the URL.

I occasionally see this error, and have been seeing it for over a year. It usually only affects a small number of sites for a short while (perhaps until the page is re-accessed).

Bug:

+ Show PDF



This is the html version of the file ....
<font color=#0039b6>G</font> <font color=#c41200>o</font> <font color=#f3c518>o</font> <font color=#0039b6>g</font> <font color=#30a72f>l</font> <font color=#c41200>e</font> automatically generates html versions of documents as we crawl the web.

The bug is still there, but the new design is live for everyone.

This feature is localized and in Finnish we can read 'Tämä on Googlen välimuistitallenne kohteesta google.com/ ...'

They've fixed the bug now. 'Google' now appears in bold.

[Moved from "New Cached Version Frame" and link fixed – Tony]

Not sure if this was mentioned before, but I notice the frame that displays at the top of cached pages has been updated:

It looks neater to me, but the Google logo is removed.

Did anyone notice this before? When you visit a cache page from google search result the portion seems to be different.
