See Google’s Redesign Experiment

If you want to see one of Google's ongoing redesign prototypes in action, simply go to, paste the following into the address bar...

javascript:document.cookie="PREF= ID=ad93daafaa747f70:TM=1158373640:LM= 1158374016:GM=1:S=wNuiLiKHrkRnMZtf; path=/;"

... then go to preferences and hit "Save." If you'll go to now and do a search, you'll notice a navigation bar to the left side.

I wonder why Google is experimenting with this prototype for such a long time... surely they collected all the data they'd reasonably need by now? Personally I don't like this design much – I don't want navigation bars in search results, and I don't like how the navigation switches from the top (on the homepage) to the left (on SERPs).
