Google is going to introduce a improved sign-in page for all Google products, if you want view the new sign-in page just sign-out from any Google products web page Like Gmail or YouTube, at first it may look as it normally does, but the bottom of the page you will notice an option : Coming soon: A new sign-in page! Preview it.
Click on “Preview it” and try the new a sign-in page , for me the new look is not too dramatic just google did few cosmetic and functional changes.The page has very simple look and I like the grey band across the top of the page which now simply displays “Sign in,” instead of “Sign in with your Google Account”. You can set this new page as default or you can switch back to old look by clicking on ‘back to old page’.
You may have noticed that the pages where you sign in to Google products like Gmail, YouTube, and Google Docs look a bit different. These changes are part of a larger redesign of Google products.
Right now, the changes are just cosmetic. They have not affected the way products work or the ranking of search results.
However, over the course of 2011, we’ll make more updates to the look and functionality of all of our products. You’ll see these changes in your account in a variety of products, and we’ll make sure to keep you updated as google introduce these changes
Google said it s doing changes based on three key design principles:
- Focus: Whether you’re searching, emailing or looking for a map, the only thing you should be concerned about is getting what you want. Our (google) job is to give the tools and features that will get you there quickly and easily. With the design changes in the coming weeks and months, it is bringing forward the stuff that matters to you and getting all the other clutter out of your way. Even simple changes, like using bolder colors for doable buttons or hiding navigation buttons until they’re actually needed, can help you better focus on only what you need at the moment.
- Elasticity: In the early days, there was pretty much just one way to use Google: on a desktop computer with an average-sized monitor. Over a decade later, all it takes is a look around one’s home or office at the various mobile devices, tablets, high-resolution monitors and TVs to see a plethora of ways to use the web. The new design will soon allow you to seamlessly transition from one device to another and have a consistent visual experience.The company aims to bring you this flexibility without sacrificing style or usefulness.
- Effortlessness: Google’s design philosophy is to combine power with simplicity. It want to keep the look simple and clean, but behind the seemingly simple design, use new technologies like HTML5, WebGL and the latest, fastest browsers to make sure you have all the power of the web behind you.
“We’re working on a project to bring you a new and improved Google experience, and over the next few months, you’ll continue to see more updates to our look and feel,” said Chris Wiggins, Google’s Creative Director for Digital.
