Google's new Search Interface

Google is working on a facelift it seems. Not for the home page but the search interface.
With a little java script, you can actually take a peek into what the geeks at google are upto.

Here is a link to how to take a peek at the new google search interface and a review by Ars technica. [via slashdot ]

There are a few steps that you have to follow carefully. It has been explained properly but the two guys at my office who I sent the link to yesterday couldn’t actually do it at first go.

So here goes again.

The script from that link is this:

javascript:alert(document.cookie="PREF=ID=fb7740f107311e46:TM=1142683332:
LM=1142683332:S=fNSw6ljXTzvL3dWu;path=/;domain=.google.com")


You have to first type google into your explorer and when you get the google page,

You have paste that code onto the address bar, not the search bar.

Before you do that, copy that script and paste it into a notepad or word ( do paste special in word- without the formats)and take care that there are no line breaks. [ do a backspace]
It should be in a single line.

And change that google.com to whatever domain you are in. google.co.in or google.co.uk what whatever shows up when you type google.

Then paste.
Press enter or go.
Ignore any pop-ups.

Start searching.
You will see no change now except that the java script is still in the address bar.Just type anything you want to search into the search box and you will get this view. [ Link ]



Look at how the side bar on the right, with more google goodies.

Expect adwords below it. More of it.

The article that I linked to above, does a good review of the New search Interface that google might come out with. They talk about world dominance and stuff because the new layout seem to enticing more google searcher to use the other google goodies. And and of course the extra real estate they have managed to create in the search interface. And for left to right readers, the placement at the left seems like a wise choice, thinks the reviewer. Nice thoughts!

PS: Thanks to TCP for pointing out the mistake...

PETITION - JUSTICE FOR RAPE VICTIMS IN MANIPUR

Show your support: http://one.aidindia.org/manipur
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Friends,

This is an appeal for your attention towards the plight of the victims of rape and molestation in the villages of hmar region in Churachandpur district, Manipur, India that were uncovered in mid January 206. More than 20 women, many of them very young tribal girls and some as young as 13-14 years have been mass raped by miltants but the national media coverage has been deplorably scant and consequently the victims have not received proper medical treatment nor emotional support from the government till date.

Volunteers at AID Baton Rouge have drafted an online petition to be sent to the Government of India and various ministries appealing for immediate intervention and requesting more attention to this issue and the region on the whole. It will also be sent all the media entities in India.

Please visit http://one.aidindia.org/manipur to view the petition and show your support.

Media links about the incident here: http://batonrouge.aidindia.org/manipur.htm

Our volunteers are also in touch with various local NGOs and organizations, collecting more information and exploring possibilities for help for the affected women. If you wish to help in anyway or can give us any further contacts, please get in touch with any of us Manoj@ manojtammiraju@yahoo.com/(225) 614 3184. or prathyusha @ prathyushadasari@yahoo.com, supriya @ supriya_gunasekaran@yahoo.com

There is also a mass protest by student and women organizations of several ethnic groups of NE in Delhi on April-4th and we are trying to get as many forces as possible to join them and also bring it to the attention of media. Your help in this regard would be of great value - please send us any relevant contacts or information.

We also request you to forward this appeal to as many people as you can.
For more information on the incident you can contact SIPHRO, Hmar Students Association or Hmar Women's Association.

Thanks,
Manoj
