How To: Enable The New Google Design

gnewlogo

Below are steps to take to enable the new Google design which is being tested. Google is notorious for their super simple design approach and the less is more approach. However, the company is in the process of testing out a new design for the site complete with a new (more fun) logo.

1. Go to Google.com – you must be using the .com (international) page.
2. Once it loads, enter this code into your web browser’s URL address bar (note: clear anything in the address bar before copying and pasting this in the field):

javascript:void(document.cookie="PREF=ID=20b6e4c2f44943bb:U=4bf292d46faad806:
TM=1249677602:LM=1257919388:S=odm0Ys-53ZueXfZG;path=/; domain=.google.com");

3. Hit enter.
4. Reload or open a new Google.com page and you will have access to the new user interface.

    The new Google search design blows. They're pulling an Office 2007 stunt by taking an interface that works extremely well and is used by all and changing it.
