Google homepage gets revamped

Google continues to revamp its products, and the latest in line to undergo a makeover is its homepage. Google has begun rolling out the new look of their search page. The upper horizontal bar is replaced by a Google logo in grey. Hover you cursor over it and click to find seven alternative services with an option to see eight more. Here again, we see Google is looking for a clutter-free design just like the neat look it chose to give its other products that underwent a facelift.

The rollout has been designed for an enhanced user experience, says a Google spokesperson. This would take users two steps to get to Images or News, but this is going to work in Google’s favour. Reportedly, Google is also being scrutinized for the way its own services are being displayed in search results. "A key question is whether Google is using its market power to steer users to its own web products or secondary services and discriminating against other websites with which it competes," Senators Herb Kohl and Mike Lee wrote.

The new design rollout is expected to reach only a limited number of users. Well, let’s see what else the Search giant has in store on the redesigning front.
