A couple of weeks ago I went to google.com and was greeted with a beautiful new design that harkened back to the old days of Google when the search page was just plain white with a search box in the middle. Now they’ve gone and added that hideous black nav bar at the top which just looks awful.

So when I found this completely new Google Search layout I was excited and actually thought that Google was going to be rolling out the design that night. After a couple of hours my search page reverted back to the ugliness it’s at now and my dreams were shattered.

Now Google has enabled the page using flags in the new Chrome 29.

To try the experimental new tab page and the new Google interface, paste this in Chrome’s address bar: chrome://flags/, use Ctrl+F to search for “Enable Instant Extended API” and click “Enabled” in the drop-down below “Enable Instant Extended API”. Then click “Relaunch now” at the bottom of the page to restart Chrome. To disable this feature, use the same instructions, but click “Disabled” instead of “Enabled”.

If you want to read the full review and see all of the new features before switching then you can check out my earlier post here.
