A Google Groups thread reports some users noticing that Google News is testing a new look. The look is showing news formatted in a one column view, as opposed to two columns.

One Google News user said:

All of a sudden, the screen appearance of my Google page changed from 2 subjects across to one. This appears to be only on one computer. I can't figure out what theheck happened or how to fix it.

Abe from Google said this is a controlled test. "We're currently conducting a few small experiments," Google said. Google did give us the heads up on these possible tests about a month or so ago. Abe added that you should give your two cents on the new look by filling out the survey on the home page.

Personally, I do not see the new design, so I cannot comment. If you see it, do send us a screen capture.

Forum discussion at Google Groups.
