    Google Search

    did they just change the results page to something ugly?


    Also something I wasn't aware of but pretty interesting:
    In December, Google expanded its Personalized Search service to provide results tailored to a user's Web-surfing tastes, so now users may see different search results from the same search term.

    Yeah! I still get the normal one, even if I switch to the US version. Are you logged in while you're browsing?

    No, I'm not signed in, but oddly enough when I run IE8, I have the old style search results...

    Hey, I encountered similar stuffs too. It's like one day the search results' layout would be presented in a new way and the next day it'll revert back to the good'ole google.

    And it irks me that I can't get back to the 'new' layout unless I happen to accidentally come across it again.

    I haven't seen a google home page in ages due to all browsers having a search field next to the address bar.

    Yeah that auto focus crap drives me insane.

    Firefox search box input: boo
    Google auto focus: bies

    Keeps splitting my searches up

    But.. but.. but you're missing out on the various google icons that's undergone cosmetic changes over time. Like these.

    Unless I'm commissioned to create one of those variations, I'm ok with that.

    My google looks like the screenshot in the original post now. It has changed since I got home.
