Google X replaces the text-link categories above the search bar on the company's standard homepage with icons that magnify and display their name when moused over like application icons do in OS X' Dock.

[edit reason] added link and quote. [/edit]
Side note: If this link gets removed, sticky me and I can pass it on.

They want to see how people react to it, do people like or not, they even announced GoogleX and then removed it, you know it's additional raise of fuss over nothing. So if you havent seen it, you'll read about it and etc...
It's amazing how good their strategy is, and making sure they dont make any mistakes.
I think the pics would be a very, very bad idea. Pictorial navigation is always a bad idea as people can't always traslate pictures to the correct words. Yeah, yeah, you can scroll over the pics to read the words, but one more step for users means they take one more step towards going somewhere else.
Somtimes a word is worth a thousand pictures.
