New And Cleaner Google With ‘Fade In’ Awesomness

by Klaus on December 3, 2009

in Google

google_logoGoogle announced on their blog how they just launched a cleaner look of Google.com, showing only the search field, two buttons and the option to change language. Once you move your mouse, the options you’re used to see, will once again appear.

If you’re using iGoogle, this change will not affect you.

The result is based on months of research and experimenting, more than 10 variants of the fade-in were tested before deciding on this one.

It’s a simple change, but I like it!

I doubt it. I think the text is still being loaded (mind you, it’s just text, not images), but not visible until you move the mouse.

Not a huge deal but I guess they have to evolve…as long as they don’t turn it into a yahoo where its so crowded you can’t even find the search box anymore. The search functionality is always more important than little links and gadget they will add.
