So the Google homepage was lauded because it was hugley usable. Removed all superfluous nonsense to allow users to complete what they wanted to do at Google which was search. The white background made Google simple to understand. So I read on Twitter about some horrendous image thing kicking in over at Google; “Google’s turned into Bing” was the first exultation I was greeted with when I entered the office.
I hate it. It’s a serious #fail – it’s not as bad as the whole debacle between Google and China (I just linked to the Wikipedia I feel defiled but I’m in a hurry here) but it’s annoyed me.
