If you have a Google account, you may have experienced some design tweaks lately while utilizing the Google search engine.
Now, Google isn’t coming outright and saying it, but you have to assume that the timing of this redesign means that it’s meant for Google Plus integration. Especially since the first button on the new black header is the Google + link, for those who have the account.
In fact, at the same time, YouTube is playing around with a redesign they’ve called Cosmic Panda. It’s a re-design too, but perhaps it’s meant to better integrate with Google Plus, which is definitely designed specifically for sharing YouTube videos?
But, Google claims that the focus of the re-design is really on device-agnosticism. That your Google experience will be seamless no matter if you’re using it on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.
