Recoded Using CSS

I suppose that "Google 2.0" includes a few more tweaks besides just the typical universal search. Google's revamp which was first covered by Danny at Search Engine Land has more than just universal search: the search engine has been resdesigned and now uses CSS.

This was picked up on WebmasterWorld:

The lightly tinted bar, with graded colouring, containing the search keywords, tipped me off to this!

Just look at that source code on any Google SERPs.

CSS up the wazoooo... (about time too!)

Indeed, it's rather nice, but I'm still getting used to it. :)

Google 2.0 is what they called their SearchMash (see The Searchology Update is best called "Google 3.0". Their use of CSS is not really significant (at least not at this time). The SERPs are essentially the same as what we had in the 2nd Generation Google yesterday. It appears they migrated the old data into the new system and we'll just have to wait for them to recrawl and reindex everything to see the full effect.

Hmm, I'm still seeing unnecessary tables in that code, or are we just talking about that top bar bit? Also, is it just our site or does google's cache not handle css properly?
