Google new "Everything" sidebar

Arrrghhhhhh

Did they really had to do like Bing and **** the layout ? I mean seriously , that sidebar is ugly and annoying as hell and there is currently no way to remove it or turn it off since Google made it permanent yesterday.

For those of you who haven't noticed or don't know what i'm talking about :

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/...-new-look.html.

I and many others are hating it and hoping that they will roll it back or least give us an option to turn it off. Who's with me ?

I'm not really in the "DIE DIE DIE" camp, but I'm much closer to that than liking it. I'd prefer it not be there.

Die die die my darling!

Don't utter a single word...

Google's new everything bar sucks. If I wanted that on the left side of my search engine I'd be using bing...

Quite annoying. Why do people always have to change what's not broken?
Youtube working fine? Change the design of everything!
Google working fine? Add an obnoxious box on the side of it!

You have to search for something. Either that or you were already using it when it was optional.

Yeah I noticed it later after I did a search. I don't really search google too often, so it doesn't bother me.

although I agree, i remember there used to be a couple good hockey sites taht were still rocking a late 90s layout..

but yea, pretty much every design change has been for the worst, luckily hf is still running a pretty old looking vbulletin

I just don't get what the point of it is...all the links on the left hand side were already (and still) available at the top.

That's what I'm trying to figure out. It doesn't add anything to the searching but clutter up the screen.

I hate it. Google has been sucking lately with their redesigns - this + YT redesign = crap.

i don't think it's humanly possible for me to care any less at all

i'm only posting because my not caring is that intense.

actually i'm going to go for the yes option just to spite all of you and to spite the op's "die die die" (...) option and anybody who really would actually get worked up about this.

what is the big deal about google? there were search engines before them. why are they like the most famous company on the planet? like people talk about how cool it is when they change the ****ing typography for a holliday or some ****. my life wouldn't be any different without google. i'd just have hotmail instead and use yahoo instead. has anybody gotten more credit for doing less?

then they announced this wave thing and people acted like it's some amazing stroke of genius. i just don't get it. it's kinda a clever take on email, but i still don't particularly care or anything.

I'm not sure why this matters at all.

Search for something > three seconds later I find what I was looking for > Leave google.

A two inch side-bar doesn't change that experience at all.

This greatly disturbs the three whole seconds I actually spend on google when I search for something.
