Google is opening up the web developer preview of next-generation search engine for you to play around and provide feedback to Google.
From Google website:
For the last several months, a large team of Googlers has been working on a secret project: a next-generation architecture for Google’s web search. It’s the first step in a process that will let us push the envelope on size, indexing speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness and other dimensions. The new infrastructure sits “under the hood” of Google’s search engine, which means that most users won’t notice a difference in search results. But web developers and power searchers might notice a few differences, so we’re opening up a web developer preview to collect feedback.
From the look and feel there is no difference. For some of the keywords that I searched, I noticed some slight difference in the search results ranking between the current google.com and this new sandbox.
Google is also interested in hearing your feedback on this web developer preview site.
Do a search at http://www2.sandbox.google.com/ and look on the search results page for a link at the bottom of the page that says “Dissatisfied? Help us improve.” Click on that link, type your feedback in the text box and then include the word caffeine somewhere in the text box
What do you think about this new Google search engine? Do you see any difference between the current google.com and this new sandbox?
