Via CyberNet [tech.cybernetnews.com] (includes screenshots):
The new layout will provide more information to users about a site simply by selecting the expandable arrow. Once the arrow is selected then more information will be displayed about the site, including a longer description/summary and a related image. They will also include related links to that site to help users find the information they are looking for more quickly.

With that amount of text + pics (GoogleExp03.jpg on above site), that's basically pulling the whole page for smaller pages into the serps. :\

This is probably an implementation of the new Orion tech Google bought recently...

I notice the "search this site" bar in the results. Could that be for sites/pages that display the sitesearch?

Some publishers aren't going to be too happy with this.

From the POV of a searcher, I kinda like it, though I wonder how much it'll increase the size (in bytes) of the search results page.

I wonder how the images are selected and whether there's a danger of ending up with a background image or piece of template.

Do you think this will favor better organized sites that are clearly structured? I am referring to the 'Inside this site' element.

Or am I expecting too much of Google?

Sweet, now no one ever needs to visit our sites. Yay for Google!

This could be a good thing. If Webmasters are able to manipulate the SERPs (ie what photo appears ect) this could be a nice little 'billboard' in the SERP if it can in any way be controlled you could do a lot with it.
