Google Look A Bit Different Today? It's Not Your Eyes


Starting late Wednesday, Google's home page and search results pages feature larger text for Web surfers whose eyesight just isn't what it used to be. Most prominent is the larger search box and the larger "Google Search" and "I'm Feeling Lucky" buttons below it.

The "supersizing" of the Google page elements was announced in a blog post Wednesday by Marissa Mayer, Google vice president of search products and user experience. "Although this is a very simple idea and an even simpler change, we're excited about it -- because it symbolizes our focus on search and because it makes our clean, minimalist home page even easier and more fun to use," Mayer said in the blog.

The blog also offers a link to 17 slides showing the evolution of the Google home page from November 1998 to a sample of an October 2007 home page in Arabic.
