Google testing out 'fading homepage'?

A remarkable finding yesterday at TechCrunch. The found the tweet Elchanan Heller send out to the world. He noticed that Google might be testing out yet another design-feature: a fading in homepage.

A video which Techcrunch posted (see below) shows that Google is testing out a homepage where the buttons below the search bar and the links at the top of the page 'fade in'.

The links do appear, but with some sort of fade effect only when you move your mouse. If you do nothing the page is completely clear, with only the Google logo and the search box showing.

So far this has not been noticed on many places, and especially not in Europe, but we'll wait and see where Google is going with this.

  • Equally nice are pockets provided for credit cards, receipts, cash and other whatnots I’d normally keep in my wallet. Twelve South have also handily included a window pocket for photo ID.
