Experience Google’s new look with a bookmarklet

In: Neat Stuff

7 Mar 2004

Update: Google’s new look is officially in effect – there is no need for this bookmarklet anymore.

Jesse Ruderman, bookmarklet creator extraordinaire, has written a bookmarklet that allows you to view Google search results in its new look. Google has been testing the new look randomly on a small number of users (I myself have only seen it once before).

Bookmark this link and click on it at Google.com: toggle google look

For those of you who are redirected by Google to your regional specific Google domain, try going to http://www.google.com/intl/en/ instead.

You can also use the bookmarklet for the regional specific Google domain you are redirected to by changing the 2 occurences of “google.com” in the bookmarklet to that domain you’re at.

Google’s new look
Yes! I wasn’t losing my mind. I stumbled upon this post at redemption in a blog and they confirmed what I have been seeing and occasionally thinking I was losing my mind. Screenshot proving I am not losing my mind….
