Illustration for article titled This Is Google's Big and Beautiful New Search for Tablets

Google's now greeting you with a brand new interface if you paddle on over with your tablet. In short? Search got bigger. Which means everything's easier to touch. Which means everything should be easier to use.


The new look's not anything revolutionary, but should be a welcome use of a roomy-screened slate's display:

We've simplified the layout of search results pages and increased the size of page contents like text, buttons and other touch targets to make it faster and easier to browse and interact with search results in portrait or landscape view.

The search button located below the search box provides quick access to specific types of results like Images, Videos, Places, Shopping and more. Just tap to open the search menu and select an option to see results in one category.

For image results, we focused on improvements that enhance the viewing experience such as enlarged image previews, continuous scroll, and faster loading of image thumbnails.

Bigger! Faster! Both good adjectives. Give it a shot. [Google Mobile Blog]


Nice move Google. I really appreciate the new focus at Google on the UI across all of their products sans Android. Larry Page is making some nice moves lately.
