Google has started the roll-out of a new user interface will be used across Google products (we’ve spotted the interface in Google Maps Canada above). As part of the redesign, the Google homepage will also change to allow for a cleaner look, visible in a screenshot from the Google blog.
Google says the interface will have three components: focus, elasticity and effortlessness. The first, focus, relates to removing clutter to find better results. Elasticity relates to the webpage being re-sizable from large screen to small screen devices whilst effortlessness relates to the usage of HTML5 and WebGL to ‘combine power with simplicity.’
The redesign is expected to combine components from the new Google+ Project and newly redesigned icons.
