The new Google: I don't like it.

Poor Google.

They always had one thing going for them, if not technical wizardry. They had a sense of style, like Apple. Clean, neat, well designed. Simple at a glance.

Now? It's a travesty. Crap on the left, crap on the top, and what's with the piles of javascript? Thanks, but I would prefer not to run down my laptop battery with a fade-in of my search page. I've noticed there's a new picture practically every day. And what's with this SearchSafe bullcrap? Google has become noisy and pushy.

More and more sites have become dysfunctional without javascript and flash. Et tu, Google?

Edit: Apparently they reverted. Yay! Mostly. Get rid of the fade!
