Google Categories Prototype

I can’t reproduce this, but Billy sent in this screenshot of a search prototype he spotted on Google while searching for buffalo bill silence. The organic results have been split up into different categories, titled “References,” “Reviews” and “Stores,” and above the results Google asks, “Prefer the classic view? Don’t categorize results” (the last one linked). “References," for example, lists Wikipedia and among the results, whereas “Reviews” shows the Internet Movie Database. Billy adds, “I had just installed the new Google Desktop for the Mac, so I’m not sure if that had anything to do with it.”
[Thanks Bill A.!]
