Google Boxy Navigation BarAlex Chitu first spotted this new Google test for a navigation element. I then covered it at Search Engine Land and now over here.

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.

The picture on the right is from Alex, I personally cannot currently replicate it.

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.

Google has been testing and trying new navigation ideas for years, here are just some of the posts we covered on this topic:
