Google Tests a New Instant Interface

Google experiments with a new search interface for the desktop that borrows some ideas from the recently launched tablet interface. There's a big "Search" title below the Google logo and Google Instant predictions are displayed below the header.

The new interface looks weird because of the label that shows the number of results and separates the search box from the list of suggestions. Another issue is that Google Instant only shows 2 suggestions instead of 4.

  1. Looks weird. possibly trying to add some new things rather than just the search title at the header. Or wants to rank rank high for the term search!

  2. May be the testing was over and results were proven to be bad, because I am getting an other interface :(

  3. I'm using this UI since some days and I find it just wonderful. What's weird in the number of results?

  4. currently ,i didn't see any Search label under the Google logo.. i like the instant search result but maybe Google could somehow filter it a little bit... just in-case if under 18 years old children surfing.. because sometime , i see some of the xxx words seem to be suggested by Google :-(

  5. Google launches a similar interface today:
