Google announced its experimental search views to add spice to the different ways in which a user could view search results.
Mentioned on the Google blog post are the Map view, the timeline view and the Info-view. Google does seem to be working on the different ways to represent information depending on the context in which the information can be made more jazzy.
Over at Google’s experimental lab, several new views for its search results pages are being tested. Aside from the traditional search results views that we used to get, additional search views might be offered soon – map view, timeline view and information view.
Map view would be great when searching for conferences or places in general, timeline view could be applied to chronological information on any topic while info view gives a quick snippet of a search result based on different parameters.
A UI update was long due since the list order display has not undergone major change since the early days of the engine.
