The employees at Google are now busy drilling holes in the hull below the waterline. Have you seen their "experiments" with the Google home page since the beginning of October? They're thoroughly annoying longtime users by removing the Search button, removing the top menu and fooling around with fade-in effects that take several seconds to complete on some systems. What's more, they're dishing up different combinations of these weird effects, depending on one's browser and operating system. If you have a browser with a User Agent Switcher feature that can spoof various other browsers and operating systems, you can see it for yourself.
