There was a certain, smooth simplicity to Google's search page like a cleanly shaved head and now it's gone.

Unlike Captain Kirk, Captain Picard didn't wear a toupee when staring down the hirsute Klingons. That took real guts. Google apparently doesn't have similar intestinal fortitude. This week, in the face of their much flashier competition, the search engine Google introduced a new homepage design that is the Internet equivalent of an Elvis pompadour.

Microsoft's Bing has some powerful features, but I can't stand how ugly and cluttered it is. Now, Google's search page homepage looks just like it and I hate it. According to the Official Google Blog, the redesign is intended to "turn it up a notch" with better support for social networking and adding a "Left-hand Nav" bar.

Happy trails Google homepage. Now, you're about as appealing as Betty White in a string bikini.

What are your thoughts on the new Google search page? Hate it? Like it? Gotta have it?

Update: Added opening sentence and changed some wording.
