Google is no more minimalistic or elegant

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