Google’s design philosophy is to combine power with simplicity
Extensive user feedback and relentless rounds of user experience lab testing have helped us implement many of these changes. We also test new features among a small percentage of live users as they use Google normally. In the last year alone, we made over 530 changes and ran over 58,000 experiments, all to see how these changes would affect real users. Although our look has been updated through the years, our utmost principle has remained the same: to give people a fast, intuitive, and useful search experience.
What is your design philosophy for Web search and how are you working to make it more simpler and faster?
Google’s design philosophy is to combine power with simplicity. We believe search should give you what you are looking for as quickly as possible, so we gather lots of metrics and data to make improvements in speed, visual design, accuracy—all to ensure you’ll have the most intuitive and smooth experience while searching.
We make these improvements after extensive field testing with real users to make sure the changes improve the ease and usefulness of Google. In lab tests, the team carefully measures user feedback, whether it’s verbal feedback, eye tracking equipment, or even the time it takes users to find their desired result. Some of our improvements have been as visible as Google Instant, which shows search results as you type; or as subtle as a slightly bigger search box.
