This is a very interesting new search interface.

This new search engine beta actually will work with a lot of English keyword searches in addition to the Japanese. Enter a keyword and give it a try.

The tabs at the top offer a number of ways to break down the SERPs. The default is to show all of the different categories together on one page "zenbu". Then we have web, Q&A, images, movies, news, maps, shopping, and sponsors.

I've run through several searches, and it looks like a useful way to break down the SERPs. Could this be part of the MS Kumo [webmasterworld.com] beta?

Guessing this is very mobile device oriented. Tabbed searches, lots of consolidation across themes.

That is a pretty slick serp. Images from my sites are coming up as well as the text.

it turns the serps into a typical content site; the previews will of images will possible entice more users to try other parts of the search engine for like images and video; it could work.
