Google may be testing New Search Interface

Posted on June 23, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , |

Last year, Google incorporated some new changes in its products wanting to ensure that all its products have a seamless interface. The most talked about change was the complete facelift that it gave Gmail. Now, a video that surfaced on the Spanish site Telco-Net shows that Google is likely to be testing a new web search interface.

The video reveals that Google plans to transform the left-hand sidebar into a horizontal bar on the top of the results.

In the short video below,one can clearly see that the UI is more vertically-oriented with other sections like Images, News and Search tools, on the top rather than onthe side. The Search tools come in the form of a series of dropdown menus on the top. Googlehas forced the new Gmail interface on people by terming it as a ‘neat and clean look.’ Several users weren’t happy withit and getting a hang of the new interface wasn’t as easy for many. This new search interface also looks neat and clean, but there is no sign of any social integration. The absence of social networking buttons could be as no user was signed into anyaccount.
This leaked information is inspired by Google’s tablet interface. This reminds us of the Google Nexus , which is supposed to hit markets soon. Come the 27th of June, Google is expectedto take the wraps off thisflagship tablet. The unveiling is expected to take place at the Google I/O developer conferencethat will run from the 27th to the 29th of June. The cost of the tablet is believed to be kept to a minimum because it supports only Wi-Fi connectivity and is devoid of a rear camera. However, it will feature afront facing camera that allows one to video chat. The tablet is also expected to be called theGoogle ASUS Nexus 7. Some rumoured specs include a display featuring a resolution of 768 x 1280, Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core 1.3GHz Cortex A9 processor and Nvidia ULP GeForce GPU.
Last year Google was on a change-spree tweakingseveral products. Besides a makeover to its Gmail service, the search giant even redesigned its navigationbar . The horizontal blackbar at the top of the page was replaced by links to the services in the new drop-down style.Recently, we saw them initiate the new website that encourages endangered languages. Across the world, there are various languages which are getting extinct.Google’s new EndangeredLanguages Project allowsusers to update the website with all the information and researchabout such languages.
Though Telco-Net calls the video exclusive, they haven’t mentioned, where and how they found it.
