What do you think?

No more Dmoz descriptions, clearer ad separation (except perhaps Adwords) and bold URL keywords to name a few.

I still see the descriptions and the urls are not bolded for me....

Didn't it do bold URL keywords before? Or do you mean bold description keywords? It's ok, but I don't think it's going to make any major difference.

michael_gersitz - using the pages text as a description is still there but no Dmoz description, are you seeing the bold search term in the pages URL's?

This is the first time I've noticed Google picking out (making bold) the exact search term (no stemming) in the URL.

Doubt it makes any diff either.

I see Google pumping their toolbar on .uk.

I'm from the UK and I already have it... Couldn't browse without it (well, if all the web was the leading search engine, I would use theirs, but)

I've never seen bold in the urls and still arn't. Would be nice to see tho.

Google toolbar is almost as good as web browsers imo :D heh

I can't really see that much difference...

It changed, was working up at Canary Wharf yesterday where the changes weren't showing using WinXP.

Im using my old laptop (Win98) to see the changes. Have attached a screenshot of the new look.
