Some of you may have noticed that Google’s search page looks a little different on your iPad. Currently, Google is testing a new, simpler layout that some users may have access to.
The new layout is cleaner and less cluttered than what’s in use now, featuring single column search results rather than two columns of information.
Icons and links that are currently in the left hand column on the search results page have been moved to the bottom of the search bar, for a much more streamlined appearance.
Clean, crisp white pace has been added between results for a sleeker look that’s easier to use on a tablet screen. Links to cached versions of web pages have been removed, as has the “Goooooooooogle” image in the footer.
It’s unknown if this will be adopted as a new standard for tablets, or if it’s a limited test that may disappear without another word. Let us know in the comments if you’ve seen Google’s new layout for yourself.
