Google is testing a completely new Google News home page design. The new layout changes the current two-column, grid-style layout with a wider main column and smaller sidebar-style column on the right. Each story has same "star" option that you find on regular Google News. But there's a new dropdown menu with several sharing options: Facebook, Twitter, Google Buzz, Google Reader, and e-mail.

The "News for you" section in the middle offers customization options, including choice to view news stories in raw list format or in sections, which groups together stories based on categories (Business, World, Sports, etc.). Story snippets and clusters are only shown by default on three top stories, but those appear when your mouse hovers over stories that're further down the page.
