    There are numerous comments and polls about this in the Forum. In Safari there is no way to fix it - Safari identifies itself as a mobile browser and Google have updated their results screen for mobile devices. I don't like the new interface at all and I've switched from Safari to iCab because it can identify itself as a PC browser if you want to and then you get the traditional Google results screen.

    But, on Safari, unless Google change their mind, you're stuck with the dreadful new results screen.

    I noticed the change too. I don't like it either, I wish they would change it back : (

    Sall good ...

    I am now using Diiggo .... a Chrome analog. It used to be called IChromy, someone mentioned that it had ads because it is free, but there are none in the version I downloaded.

    It is like iCab in that you can 'identify' it as another type of browser. I used Mac OS X Safari 5

    Works great looks good ... I happy :]
