Screenshots of a new results page on Google.com have been floating around the web for a few months now. The new ’style’ had only been accessible to an apparently random selection of beta users, and members of Google’s very exclusive pre-release group. Until now.

The new UI sports information on results in other sections (images, groups, froogle and news) that core users don’t tend to use (screenshot). We’ve seen efforts in the past to combine the different categories together (e.g. image results at the top of normal search queries) and the latest design reflects a desire to spread interest across the sections. The new UI also cleans up the head of the page (significantly), and loses the light blue background bar indicating which page users are on.

To view the new UI, follow these simple steps…

1. Head over to google.com
2. In the address bar, paste one of the javascript commands (given below)
3. Enter a search query, and voila!
