Looks like Google is testing a radically different search interface

If you’re not reaching, engaging, and monetizing customers on mobile, you’re likely losing them to someone else. Register now for the 8th annual MobileBeat, July 13-14, where the best and brightest will be exploring the latest strategies and tactics in the mobile space.


Google may be in the process of testing a new web search interface that transforms the left-hand sidebar into a horizontal bar on top of the results, according to a video obtained by Techno-Net.

The leaked interface clearly takes inspiration from Google’s tablet interface for search. Like the sidebar that’s been there for years, the horizontal bar lists Web, Images, Maps, Videos, News, Shopping, and a More tab that lists other Google services.

Let us know what you think of the potential interface change in the comments. Check out the video below to see it in action:
