The thing on the left annoying, mainly because I don't need it to be there lol

Wikipedia changed, too, and I can't help but look to the left when I need to search for something.

the changes to the logo look way better to me. the heavy drop shadow was making it look dated. but i agree about the search. i think it's annoying.

For the logo, I love it! It's a pretty damn simple tweak, but it modernized the whole image.

I agree with everyone above me that the options on the left look ugly and is annoying, but I kind of understand why they added it. There are so many sources of information now, it makes sense to have a very clear way of filtering it all out. If only there was a nicer way of doing it...

i agree. the wikipedia search bar relocation caught me by surprise. i missed it being on the left.

and i think everybody seems to agree that the left bar on google is annoying.

I don't care about Google's redesign too much, but I liked the drop shadow behind the logo.

Yes, big-time. I prefer the old YouTube layout, mostly because the "related videos" sidebar actually contained videos related to the ones I was viewing.

Hmm I didn't know the logo changed too, but it's much more vibrant. It will late a little getting used to now that I have spotted the difference. I like the old logo's drop shadow -- this is coming from someone who is not to fond of them on logos either!

And the new left hand column is shifting gears to what Bing has done for their browser accessibility I guess!

Too many changes happening at once! Deviantart has changed their site up a bit too.

I must be lost in space because I didn't notice these changes at all. >.< Even the sidebar, FAIL. lol

The design is fine, I guess. Didn't really pay attention to it.

I was just searching stuff the other day and it wasn't like that. :/ I kinda like that clicking on an image brings you straight to it instead sending you to the website first.
