New Google Search Interface Causes Concern
Google has released a new top-down user interface navigation when displaying search results. Barry Schwartz at Search Engine Roundtable reports on the possible pitfalls of this new, "clean" interface.
"Since June of this year, Google has been testing a top down user interface navigation. In fact, they even confirmed the test in September and a few weeks ago, I went on record saying this will be rolled out soon. Yay, I was right.But I am not happy that I was right. Google said this is a "simpler, cleaner design on the search results page." Yea, for now. I suspect this white area will be used to plaster all sorts of things at the searcher.Mark my word, it will get messy and annoying."
