I was just searching on G and between clicks the page format changed? No more colored ads except for the top spot.

Not the first time they have tested that. There is a thread around here from a year ago saying the same. (I think it was in the adwords forum).

We're always trying little experiments to see how users like it and if it helps them, so I wouldn't be surprised to see experiments like this. :)

>how users like it and if it helps them

Maybe a dumb question but how would not knowing an ad is an ad help somebody?

How about the extra AdWords real estate. On my screen they take up an additional 100 pixels. That's 100 less for the free SERPS.

HI GG:
Just wanted to say that I like the search within the results feature. And what is the dictionary feature for?
Overall I think I like your old format better.
