Simplified Google results UI

Looks like Google are trying another UI iteration at the moment. While lazily searching for dribble rather than putting the full domain into the address bar I was sent to the page shown above. It looks to have a much cleaner monotone set of icons and a nicer treatment of the search results typographically.

I have only been served this version once today, despite repeated attempts, so it is obviously something they are just testing for now. For me it is a much more pleasant design, the focus is on the results rather than on the coloured icons to the left that the current design uses. I’m not so sure about the change of colour in the top nav but maybe because I had only just got used to the light blue version that I like a lot now.

You people and your idiot Googloid friends have shutdown and deleted my world renowned fake Ballmer blog!
Five d@** years of great literature, wit, scarcasm, commentary, observational comedy and the greatest artwork and image manipulation you iTards could even imagine, GONE!

If you poeople have even a shred of decency or fair-play between the lot of you, you would be pissed too! (I doubt it though)

AAARGH!

I saw it, it looks interesting but I don't understand the colour at all, it's completely against the traditional Google styling.

I think that’s kind of the point. It”s a really good contrast with the important part of this page which is the search results. It drops the options visual impact. The red is part of the google colour palette and the grey is just lovel,y and subtle. Not saying it is perfect, but it’s a vast improvement.

I'm not saying it wasn't a nice colour scheme, just very different from the typical blue and white Google rocks. Personally, I wouldn't mind the red+black all over the page.

maybe it sounds as android app... it's primitive, it's like MS-DOS grade GUI, if compared with iOS.

It turns out the design refresh is part of a massive UI refresh on all Google products. This was done to coincide with the launch of Google+. So far Search, Gmail, News, Calendar and Google+ all share this new style. What does everyone think about the direction of the products?

Like I said above I like it and the longer I have lived with the more it grows on me.

I absolutely love it. Especially the new gmail themes. They really look slick and make work easier. Much easier.

Colors don't feel right, but that's just due to being used to blue. The site loads even faster than it used to and is easy to navigate even with all the new features they keep adding. It's an improvement on that front.

I don't like the new layout at all. Also hate the urls that are above the search URL text and not below (anyone knows a trick for the old version Google?)

I guess it is purposely done to simplify things...look a bit plain though...
