From the looks of it, it definitely looks more jazzier, however, it is also more useful as the sidebar sports links to narrow the search down to particular segments like images, news, books, maps and so on.

In addition to that, the search also provides related suggestions under the See alsocategory. This can come in pretty handy when users are trying to use Google to search for travel destinations since they have more similar options to search from.

Overall the new interface is pretty exciting and it will be good to see it being rolled out soon. One thing is for sure, search is the bread and butter for Google and they will never be buoyed down by competition. And any innovation is always good for consumers like us, may it be new features or new competition, it is a win win situation.

    Google has compromised usability and the user experience in general for the potential of a few more ad-clicks. Pretty sad. http://tinyurl.com/38jjbyr
