Microsoft testing a new more Metro Bing look


New above, old below. Click for full-size.

Agha has written to let us know that he noticed a new look to the Bing result page which only lasted a few minutes.

He did however manage to take a screen shot, and the changes appear concentrated in the header. The new design appear to feature the starker boundaries and lack of gradients more typical of the Metro design, and moves the Bing logo to the right of the screen rather than top left.

Agha notes the design was pulled soon after, and it is not clear whether we will see this rolled out to everyone eventually. Microsoft is pretty famous for their A:B testing, where they roll out competing changes to a random selection of users and see which one results in the best performance.

What do our readers think of the new look? Better or worse? Let us know below.

Thanks Agha for the tip.
