Google is testing yet another type of navigation method or user interface. This new one is more like Google's Android OS or Chrome navigation, where the navigation items are within a box button. You click on the button and additional Google products and services show up.

Google is not shy about testing a new navigation method. Google said in response to this news that they are constantly testing new user interfaces.
