    I've been using these new Google design for more than 2 weeks.

    Guess I was a beta tester without even knowing it. :))))

    Didn't know everyone else wasn't seeing the same thing.

    Whilst it looks cleaner I don't think that's their motivation here. I've no research to prove it, but I'd wager most people's eyes instinctively skipped past the ads to the first 'real' result.

    By removing a clear visual distinction, we'll be more likely to treat the ads as equals to natural results — upping conversion and making Google more money

    I've had it for about a week now. It still feels a bit odd to me. When I first got it, I was like "is something not loading?"

    It does look cleaner though.

      My thoughts exactly. I've had it for a few weeks now and keep thinking my ad blocker is blocking a stylesheet.

      Big difference is how the display inline ads. I think that's going to make a difference in conversation rate.

    Noticed today, a very welcome refinement. Overall looks cleaner, bigger fonts, text-underline on :hover only. Promoted results look more integrated as well.

    I got the update today, I like it! It kind of suits the rest of their style.

    Google is making/testing a lot of bold visual changes as of lately. I'm glad they don't get stuck in the past unlike some of their competitors.

    Same here. Had it, looks cleaner, but I don't really like it. Might have to get used to it or something, but the underline really said "what comes below is less important".

    I literally started an "uninvited redesign" of Google search results yesterday haha.
