For the past few days, I've been noticing that when doing a Google search, the Web, Images, News, Videos, etc. tabs will be in different locations depending on what I'm searching for. This is really annoying and inconsistent, especially when I'm quickly looking for Images and hit News instead, for example. It's happening for me in both Firefox and Chrome. Anyone else notice this or know why Google is doing this? Do they want to make people go mad?

Seems fine to me:


They are always in that order for me from what I can remember.

Sometimes Video comes 2nd in the line. So it'll go Search | Video | Maps | Images ...... Only happened on Chrome on my phone so far though.

They might be moving them depending on heart at content they consider most relevant to your search query.
