Google's New Look

Postby Chris » Fri Apr 02, 2004 10:48 am

http://www.google.com/

Noticed anything different? The tabs are gone... the directory link is no longer on the front page... and in the web search, the directory categories and descriptions no longer show up. This is a sad day for Google! :shock:

It's probably all for the 56kers. That's what it sounds like to me.

I don't understand why they've almost downgraded Google by removing the directory features in the web searches. And what's so hard about putting a link to the directory on the main page! Huh?! ;)

Maybe they have gone bank errupted and don't have enough space (megabytes) for space!? Just an idea like - although it looks disgusting!

As an editor at the directory http://dmoz.org/, I need to use Google in order to find good sites for new categories.

Also, when I used Google for casual searching, the directory categories in the search results helped me to identify if the site was relevant to what I was looking for. But they're gone now!

It's called dog pile because it uses a bunch of different engines, and I think it includes google. But it's easier to find google searches on google than on dogpile. You get a variety of search sites though. I found out about it from elementary school.

Google's going to put in an e-mail service as well. The good news: You'll get 1 GB (1 Gigabyte :shock:) of space to store your mail, for free! The bad news...: Sometimes Google will scan an e-mail of yours, and throw in related ads, based on what's in the message... (Meaning it will read the message...)
Follow your dreams, you never know where they'll lead you.
