Want The Old Google Design? Here Is How.

Last week, Google unveiled their new design and truth be told, most bloggers and journalists liked the new interface. But that does not mean most people like it, in fact, many normal Google lovers hate it.

The sad part is that no matter how much you hate it, Google said they won't give you the ability to get the old look. At least, not officially.

Currently, if you want the old look, you can access it at http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=all. Go there, do a search and you get the old Google look. But how much longer that will last is unknown. I suspect if Google wants to make sure they are consistent - which they aren't always - they will make sure that URL goes to the new design soon. So if you love the old Google, eat it up over there, that is until Google replaces it with the new user interface.
