SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google’s search results on desktop and laptop computers now look slightly different thanks to a makeover that mirrors a design introduced on smartphones and tablets a few months ago.
The new presentation increases font sizes and removes the underlines below the blue links of each search result on PCs. Ads appearing at the top and the right-hand side of the results page are no longer presented in boxes shaded in blue and yellow. The marketing pitches are now marked by small ad tags to distinguish them from the rest of the results.
Google Inc.’s lead search designer announced the makeover Wednesday with a post on his Google Plus page.
