Google Beta - Imagine a New Search Engine

Google's logo in 1999

Forget about the layout of most search engines, forget about the top 10 results, forget about different interfaces for images, news, maps, videos. Imagine that Google starts from the beginning, puts the beta sign next to the logo and reinvents itself.

Soon you might be invited to try an experimental version of Google search. It may be SearchMash, but I'm sure it's much more than that.

How would you imagine a search engine if you tried to ignore everything you've seen before?

"Phrase in English: You're invited to try an experimental version of GOOGLE search.
Translation Help: This is the promo for Google beta."

This is a screenshot from "Google in Your Language", a program in which you can translate Google's services in different languages. The messages show up in "Google in Your Language" before they're live at, so they may indicate new features or products.


  1. Looking great! How 'soon' should wait for the invitations? :)

  2. That's awsome, who will be invited, any idea?

  3. Don't you think that google is preparing its huge April Fools' Day?

    It could be, since they want to do all the things they do better and bigger than others...ya

  4. The web was so different in 1999 when online retail was in the minority of content. An engine that gave priority to information would be a real asset today.

  5. Hmmm - interesting question :)

    I'd see a search engine that doesn't report a set of webpages as results but rather dynamically compiles a somewhat simple text/report/whatever (similar to a wikipedia page?) describing exactly what you want to see.

  6. Cool...So long as it doesn't obsolete my G4...

  7. Its Awesome.
