Google Search Tests New Open Design? Maybe It's A Bug?

Hay Google

I had two different people share with me screen shots and video grabs of Google possibly testing a new more open styled search results page design. The design seems so off to me that it seems like a bug, but now that two different people have seen it recently, I am thinking it might be a real test.

Plus Google told us the company will be making numerous tests to the search results page over the next couple of weeks. So maybe this is one of them.

Here is a GIF of it in action from SEMRush on Twitter:
