Google has been testing a new design for a while now, those who see it and write about it, have been complaining. We posted early pictures of the design in February. But now, anyone who goes to http://news.google.com/ will see the design.

The Google News blog explains why and shows before and after pictures, including a video. Danny also does an excellent analysis of the change. Here is the video:

Here is a picture, of the full page as I see it today for archive purposes.

So, do you like it?

This will take a LOT of getting used to.

What I really want to be able to do is exclude sites such as fox news. My experience would be much more enjoyable.

The new design is horrid. Why would the most successful internet company in the world turn of their most successful sites into a cluttered, messy, crapfest. Do they want to be the new geocities, the new AOL? They are well on their way if this is an indication of their new direction

Personally, I don't like it. When you have a good thing why do you need to change it?

The Google News Redesign is dreadful. Too much scrolling, inability to scan for interesting articles, too many distractions.

I've just changed my browser to default to Yahoo instead of Google. What were they thinking? The redesign (piles) is clearly aimed at mobile devices, and anyone else can go jump in a lake.

I used to go to Google news every day. No more, I've found several other news sites that are much better than the New Coke.

I have stopped using google search and switched to Yahoo because the redesigned google news was so awful. It showed a complete lack of understanding of their market. If this is an example of their new leadership they will shortly be the last big thing. I may not go back to Google what poor judgment to allow this to occur without filtering it through a test group. I expect their stock to tank in the future.
