Google search undergoes changes

Google, the search giant, has announced that its
search service is to undergo some major changes that will make its service more
inclusive of the Web 2.0 generation. At the moment users wishing to search for
news or pictures would be required to do 2 web searches, one for news and one
for pictures.

Now if we wanted to know what the face of “Universal search”
would look like, Google has given us a glimpse of just that.
Soon all searches will display results under a multiple-tab system that will allow surfers to quickly switch between different content results based on the search term.

 This means that blogs, video, web pages and images will be displayed under multiple-tabs
according to the search term. Marissa Mayer, vice president of search and user
experience at Google, said “It's breaking down the silos of information that
have been built up;it’s a broad, long-term vision that will unfold over the next few years.”
Other changes includes Google’s user interface, with other Google services such as G-Mail being accessible via a drop-down menu.
