Google Tests Another Navigation, Combines The Old And New Navigation

Posted on Feb 6 2012 - 11:47am by Editorial Staff

According to Google Operating System, an unofficial Google blog, the search engine giant, Google in a new experiment both the old and new interfaces are combined into one. The black bar is still present with more spacing between the links that are now bold and grayer. When clicking on the “More” link the links in the menu that opens are now black and bold instead of blue like in the old interface. The elements that are currently in the upper right corner in the old interface, the username, and share box for Google+ and profile picture are in the experiment placed below the black bar which is something from the new interface.

Try the new navigation:

  • First go to Google.com or to Google.co.uk, whichever you prefer.
  • You then need to open the Developer tools within the browser. If you are using Google Chrome press CTRL + SHIFT + J, in Firefox press CTRL + SHIFT + K and if you are using Internet Explorer (8+) press F12 en then open the tab Console. Safari users press CTRL + ALT + I and in the panel that opens choose Console.
  • Then copy the code (below) in this text file into the developer screen and hit Enter.
  • After hitting Enter the new navigation should show right away.

The code:

document.cookie=”PREF=ID=381502750b6e9119:U=aaee74aefea7315a:FF=0:LD=en:CR=2:TM=1328391998:LM=1328392000:S=yPtlCgLbEnezu5b4;  path=/; domain=.google.com”;window.location.reload();

Google announced last month that it is going to transform the Google into such a search engine that not only gives you back the content, but also it offers you now people and relationships i.e. experiences from people across the web, coming in for a fair amount of criticism. By looking at its latest move, the company intends to forge ahead with its social integration, assisting the 90 million+ users it has already seen sign up.
