Google is no more minimalistic or elegant Google is no more minimalistic or elegant Presentation Transcript

  • Web Page of Google Search is
    no more minimalistic or elegant?
  • New button in dropdown. Is it Good or Bad?
  • Let’s check it on common search scenarios from the office workstation (i.e. having both keyboard and mouse, and monitor)
  • Typing + Arrow Down + Enter == Search Results
  • Typing + Mouse Click == Search Results
  • Typing + Enter == Search Results
  • Typing + Search Button == Search Results
  • Enter OR Arrow Down + Enter OR Mouse Click OR Search Button
    Shit happens. Too many alternatives for me!!
    Why I must select from 4 options to continue??
  • Two options to search ignoring suggestions:
    hit Enter vs. Mouse Click new Search Button
    Question:
    Was it done to keep duplication of keyboard and mouse?
  • Or for Symmetry sake?
    If there is a search button for no-suggestions case, then it must be a search button for suggestions case. Right?
  • Is location of that ‘symmetrical’ button right?
    Search Button is hit by Mouse (remember we are not talking about touch interfaces, only keyboard & mouse so far)
  • Put the button closer to the typing area! Why not?
    Why do I need to move mouse far away from the typing area to run the search? Let’s keep typing & Search Button within the same locus of the attention.
  • Over-engineering?
    The Web Page of Google Search is getting too complicated.
    Technology allowed new ways, that have been used and introduced big redundancy in UX.
    Remove that Search Button from dropdown at all… as useless
  • Queries without suggestions are still good. Thank God!
