Google Tries New Interface, Removes “I’m Feeling Lucky” Button

Another experiment from Google. But this time, the search engine giant tested a new search button and removed the "I'm Feeling Lucky" from its homepage.

Google’s “I’m Feeling Lucky” had existed for over several years now, though Internet users cannot deny that this button has been used rarely by people. The search engine giant, noticing this fact, decided to remove it then from its interface.

Google tested out some new changes to make their results more helpful. Specifically, they created a new search button inspired by Bing, to present their search results based upon what are seen on Google Finland. Since web users often read the webpage’s descriptions, Google changed the layout of the results. It alternates the URL and the description sections so the URL will be placed below the live link. They also highlighted the search results pages’ header and uses gray/red icons, and labels in the vertical navigation menu. Google as well changed the “cached” and “similar” which are now located in the Instant Preview box so common users will not find them easily.

According to the search engine, the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button was deleted simply because it is no longer useful. In fact, Google Instant had made the search button useless for some time, so that they could remove it altogether.

But when you see Microsoft Chief Executive, Steve Ballmer, walk down to the stage of a Blackberry World conference and announce something about Bing, hell must have frozen.

In an apparent move to boost their presence in the business-use of the smartphone, Microsoft and Research in Motion (RIM) have forged an alliance that will bring the Bing search engine and map to Blackberry phones. This comes as a surprise, since Microsoft and RIM has been playing one-upsies over the business category of the smartphone industry years ago.

It’s not psychic power, but Google finishes your sentence to save time and effort.

Dubbed by Google as a “fundamental shift” in search — the search engine giant unveiled its new feature called Google Instant. This added feature finishes user’s inquiry by offering relevant keywords.

Google Instant is sort of an extension of Google Suggest. The difference between the two is instead of just hinting the search you are doing, it automatically completes the words. The results including images, videos and other snippets are already presented on the page.
