If you answer “No” to the following question then you need to check out the article below: Do you like the new interface that Google has?

If you do not like the new interface then you will be glad to know that there is a simple means of bringing the old one back. You will get the old color scheme and the old interface for search that does not feature a sidebar. All you have to do to get the old interface back is go to http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=all. If you use the classic Google.com page as your homepage, switch it with that link and each time you click the Home button in your browser you will be taken to the old Google search engine.

If you don’t have Google set as your homepage, simply bookmark the link presented above. Whenever you want to use Google and search for something, click that bookmark.

Please note that the http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=all link works now, but it might stop working in the future. Enjoy it while it still works.

Google rolled out the fresh new interface last week. It features a new color pattern and a side panel in the left-hand side of the screen. From said side panel you can filter your search results and categorize results. The left side panel is powered by Universal Search, the Search Options panel and Google Squared. Universal Search brings the most relevant search results to you. The Search Options panel, which was released last year in spring, helps you filter your search. Last but not least, Google Squared helps you find “entities” that are related to your search, allowing you to explore related topics.

In coming up with the new interface, “we tried to take all the things we strive for at Google and make them better: powerful technology, snappy results, simplicity and a fun and quirky personality. Our goal was to take a design known by millions of people and make it better. As a designer, it’s hard to think of a more exciting challenge,” explained Senior User Experience Designer with Google, Jon Wiley.
