New Google Search Bar

A new Google bar helps you navigate quickly between products, and share the right stuff with the right people easily on Google+. Instead of the horizontal black bar at the top of the page, you’ll now find links to your services in a new drop-down Google menu nested under the Google logo.

I like these changes. What do you my readers think?

  1. Hi, Timethief

    For some reason, I like the old Google page better. It looked so much cleaner. I don’t particularly like the black drop-down menu on the page. I’m getting used to it though.

    Thanks for sharing!

    P.S., Sorry, I haven’t stopped by in a while… I’ve been working overtime. Just wondering how you’re doing. Are you feeling better?


  2. I liked the drop down black menu but… but… earlier on today it started dropping down while I was typing! Between the new versions of Google search and the new version of Yahoo mail, it’s all doing my head in! (But I’m still cheerful!)

  3. Personally, I’d be happier with accurate search results – Google has gone to hell lately. I type in one search term and Google changes it to something entirely different. Throwing up irrelevant results is bad enough, changing the search term is just not acceptable and, tweeting about it showed that I’m by no means alone with this problem.

    Yep, I know they have a shiny, new, verbatim facility, but that’s only available after Google have totally trashed the search – it should be on the main page and selectable from the outset. Current implementation is too clunky.

    And the new menu bar? For, it’s of no use, and seems to be change for its own sake – not particularly better – just different.

    • Hi Ron,
      I don’t have any harsh crticism regarding the changes to Google search ie. Instant Search. From what I can tell Google has been trying to make the search page feel like it’s part of my desktop. It’s aimed at providing a presumably quicker way to access all of their products. It’s also obvious that top priority is being given to Google+ integration across each and all of those products. I’m not a Google plus member. Are you?
