Google Slips Off Its Sidebar For a More Enjoyable Experience

By Saeed Al-Rubeyi on at

Google's pushed out a redesign today, doing away with the sidebar in search results for a cleaner page that will look better on all devices. More space for your "who got voted off X-Factor" search results.

As Google puts it:

"With the new design, there’s a bit more breathing room, and more focus on the answers you’re looking for, whether from web results or from a feature like the Knowledge Graph:

The same advanced tools you’re used to are still there when you need them."

The sidebar which appears on search results showing options for Web, Images, Maps etc. has been removed -- or rather moved -- to the top of the results page. It's worth noting that most of these are already present in the top black bar and have been for some time, so this may be a step towards an even sparser results page.

Test it for yourselves, but only at the international site -- Google's various language and region specific sites have yet to see the redesign. [Google]
