Noticed the patent search a few days ago but didn't comment on it because the vast majority of my last few comments have been facts there existed for roughly 3 years. I can't possible fathom why patents would be close to important enough to put on the front page. Hum, guess Google knows what they are doing, eh?

Here's a reason. They want to put all their search services (google.com/options/) on the homepage:
blogs
books
catalogs [not yet]
desktop
directory [outdated]
finance [not yet]
froogle
images
maps
news
patents
scholar [only for .edu mails or in campus]
video
web

(Eytan, don't hesitate to drop me an email if you see something new, too... I appreciate every tip, old or new, because it's impossible for all of us to always know whether or not something's new.)

I dont see any difference here. a Gmail link on the classic view page would be nice.

I take it back. I see it on the classic but not personalized. No big thing- I still want <above.>

I think they want to tell us: don't mess with our patents

Professional researchers do not use Google to search for patents (they lack recency and codification of the data) and consumers do not search for patents. This has particularly limited appeal and my estimate is 4 weeks or sooner before it is removed.

It's weird how they're rolling this small feature out. It seems Video is the only one who has gotten on the bandwagon. I got it first on the Classic page and then about an hour later on my Personalized page, Images, and News. Maps and Desktop not too long later.

I see it on Firefox 2.0 on my personalised page: google.com/ig

I actually really like the patents search, it's useful isn't it!

My 'more' box looks like this:

Blogs
Books
Froogle
Groups
Patents
Scholar (!)

I'm seeing it today on Google.com too, with: Blogs, Books, Froogle, Groups, Patents

Personman, I bet you see "Scholar" because you're on a University network...

My theory is that Google is adding stuff to the "more>>" link based on what you have visited (where "you" is a particular Google ID).

Has anyone seen "Patents" under more>> without first visiting Google's patents search? I would prefer to have control over this feature – I've got Patents on my more>> list for checking it out once even though I may never visit it again.

There was another thread about this:

Definitely not true. Sign out of Google, clear your cookies, restart your browser, then go to Google.com.
