It seems that Mountain View is getting the best from the rivalry with Microsoft Bing and from this morning on my Italian Home Page, I can see a very very high quality picture as a backgrund instead of the old white and clean abitual background.
It is also possible to choose your favourite picture from a bunch, or to use your photos from Picasa or directly from your Computer… Google also give you some advices about the best pictures for you… That’s a nice restyling!
It’s since yesterday that google.com is testing a new home page with a more modern look than the actual old school one, and even a new result page.
This one is very similar to the result page you can find on bing.. with a new column on the left for applying filters to your searchs.
It seems that google it’s beginning to feel the competition from bing, and they are trying to take some ideas from their rival.
Here are some screens..
