Did you also reset your font-size in your browser yesterday when you noticed how the Google Search had grown in size? There’s nothing wrong with you, or me, it’s just Google changing things around.
Google writes on their official blog:
For us, search has always been our focus. And, starting today, you’ll notice on our homepage and on our search results pages, our search box is growing in size. Although this is a very simple idea and an even simpler change, we’re excited about it — because it symbolizes our focus on search and because it makes our clean, minimalist homepage even easier and more fun to use. The new, larger Google search box features larger text when you type so you can see your query more clearly. It also uses a larger text size for the suggestions below the search box, making it easier to select one of the possible refinements.
Personally I don’t think it’s necessary to make this change but I also don’t mind it, I already got used to it after just one day of use. But I’m certain there’s a lot of people out there who doesn’t like it – that’s how it usually goes when something changes, some people will always be against it.
What’s your thoughts on the “new” looks of Google?
