The world’s most popular search engine is changing the way that millions of users will see their search results.

Google announced that it would now feature a permanent panel on the left hand side of the page that would allow users to refine their search results, and that it would also introduce a new section called “Something Different,” which would present topics that are broadly related to the search query.

Google is also simplifying the logo that appears at the top of the search page, removing the light shadows that previously appeared behind Google’s name, the company said.

Today’s metamorphosis responds to the increasing richness of the web and the increasing power of search,” said Marissa Meyer, the company’s vice-president of search products and user experience.

“Today’s changes showcase the latest evolutions in our search technology, making it easier than ever to find exactly what you’re looking for.”
