Google's New Search Look Officially Rolled Out

It's been showing up for some users since November, but Google has now officially taken the wraps off its new search look.

The major new thing is a left-hand sidebar that filters and categorises results, but they're also pitching the use of Google Squared for comparing different things you're searching for. Today's roll-out should also mean Google users outside the US get consistent access to the new navigation. [Official Google Blog]

    I hate the new look of Google!!! I use Google for my job a lot (speed is a necessity!) and now the results are squished in the middle and there's a huge, empty, and distracting column on the left. Don't need/want the features there. Agree that Google needs to go back to the older look or, at the very least, have an option to close the blasted column on the left!

    is it just me or could jon wiley sound like kermit the from??

    Awesome, it looks just like the new YouTube layout.

    Ergh.

    Hate it. *We want the old layout and logo put back to the way it was.* Who's with us? It SUCKS. Waste of screen space and the new logo looks like a flippen' TOY for crying out loud! Yesterday's logo was clean, sleek and sharp, today's - a joke.

    Anybody find a way to turn this off? :(

    Google is no longer my homepage after this crap.

    I hate it.

      so what is your new website, I don't like google's new look either

      msn bing is a hot mess

      and I grew out of yahoo in highschool

    I hate the new look/layout! It hurts my eyes. The search results should be left justified. Now theres a "side bar" in the way that I might use once in a thousand searches.

    And the new search textbox is way too big. It looks like a graphic rather than a user input.

    I wonder if we can contact google or if they would maybe take a poll of their users so they would know we hate this crappy version. I'm with Roger on the homepage thing, I just don't know what to switch to.

    If I can't tell the difference between the Yahoo! search and the Google search page, I might as well just use Yahoo!

    Google never heard, "What ain't broke, don't fix." And, obviously, the folks at Google had no idea what was actually working for them.
    Congrats, Google, for just slaughtering your golden goose.

    Some designer at Google had to justify his salary and we get this.

    YUCK!

    And, oh, one more thing ... If the left drop-down pane is sold to me as being bloody useful, then why the dickens do we still have the same info on the top, above the multi-coloured Google name?

    Is this what "optimization" means to those overfed Google fatsos?

    i freaking hate this new google! so annoying. i don't understand what the point of the stupid, ugly, annoying, pointless, retarded, gay, fat, (insert bad adjective) left column is. it just doesn't make sense!!!!!!! i hate it!!! hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it hate it x2
