    As you know, it hasn't infected me yet......but from what I have seen I would rather stay as I am. That said, in a years time I will have completely forgotten about what it was like before the changes......or maybe an hours time as my memory isn't that good!

    Is that still bugging you Tim! I'm afraid with all these little changes going on around us, it seems we have no choice in the matter. I have a screen like Gabs so it hasn't affected me yet! Post a screen of yours Tim! So I can compare screens.

    It only affects tablet computers - so are you doing this from your iPad or PC/Mac?

    So I'm really surprised that you don't see the new interface then. Must be a very selective roll out....

    Thats the worst thing i wanted.

    Although it works well in portrait mode, but in landscape mode, there is a lot of bugs and make it hard to use. Eg. Google homepage not loading properly. Search not displayed properly. In other words, they didnt optimised the landscape mode.

    The new design only display 2-3 result without scrolling while the old one can display up to half the page. The old one is faster and more efficient.

    Btw, if you have atomic web browser, you can change it to the old one by making google identify it as another browser.

    I've done the same too - though I use iCab. Bought the browser just to avoid having to be subjected to the new interface. It's probably OK for an iPhone, which has a really small screen, but for the iPad it's just not sensible. At least we should be given the choice.
