Just read an article from Google Systems that Google have or will be removing the “I’m feeling lucky” button on their search page. Personally, I have only used that button once, and it was because of a silly joke that spread in email.
I don’t think a lot of people will miss it. I don’t think a lot of people use it in the first place. Their new interface though looks interesting, kind of what we see frequently nowadays with other systems. The navigation menu and preview boxes are some that we also see in updates such as what I saw in the new Yahoo! mail. When I saw that, I was happy that it makes it easier for users to see how many comes up and separated into categories like in which folders and what year/month. I haven’t seen the new Google layout yet, only the screencaps provided in the article but I am definitely excited to see how it works and if it will make my life easier.
Has Google removed the I’m lucky button in your search page already? How do you find the new layout? Is it easier to navigate? Hope you can share your thoughts.
