New Google Homepage Design


Going to google.com, I saw a new design that puts the navigation on the left side of the page. Maybe they try to make the homepage design consistent with the new SERP look.

Here's another homepage design experiment.

  2. Did you check your browser cookie to see what was set that gave you the new homepage?

  3. Why is Google's homepage so LAME?
    I think Yahoo does a better job, recognizing that users want to personalize the site they use every day.

  4. RE anonymous,

    which is it that you use everyday, Google or Yahoo? If it is Google than you are definitely able to personalize your homepage. All you have to do is click the Personalized Home link (upper right hand corner). In fact I think Google does a better job at letting users personalize their pages than Yahoo.

  5. Google have the right idea with there design, it's been the same since as long as I've been using it and its its simplicisty and results that make me use it. I have recently set up my Personalized Google page and am findiing it fantastic, its replaced my rss reader pretty much. A great company, doing more for the user than any other.

  10. I want the plain homepage background. If Google want to offer a background design facility, why not point out this is available by adding it to the toolbar?
    Why should I have to design a blank background?
    Google - LEAVE WHAT EVERYONE HAS USED FOR YEARS ALONE.
