How to Try The New Google Search


Recommended Posts

Confirmed. The rumors about Google's redesign are true, and you can try it for yourself with a very simple method.

1. Go to Google.com.

2. Once it loads, enter this code into your web browser's URL address field:

  java script:void(document.cookie="PREF=ID=20b6e4c2f44943bb:U=4bf292d46faad806:TM=1249677602:LM=1257919388:S=odm0Ys-53ZueXfZG;path=/; domain=.google.com");

There shouldn't be any http://google.com in front of that. Just that code.

3. Hit enter.

4. Reload the Google.com page and you will have access to the new user interface.

It's because there's a break in the code in the box up there between java and script and it needs to be one word.

java script:void(document.cookie="PREF=ID=20b6e4c2f44943bb:U=4bf292d46faad806:TM=1249677602:LM=1257919388:S=odm0Ys-53ZueXfZG;path=/; domain=.google.com");

is how it should come out properly, at least I hope it does.

Yes, make sure you take out the space between JAVA and SCRIPT. Otherwise you'll error out.

The IPB forum software insists on adding a line break between java and script. Remove that and it'll work.

I tried it in IE 8, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Worked in all four of them.

Doesn't work for me. I presume this is because Google always reverts to .co.uk

Nope, it could be to do with the fact that it is 3.7 though...

Worked for me in firefox.

Heres the correct code:

java script:void(document.cookie="PREF=ID=20b6e4c2f44943bb:U=4bf292d46faad806:TM=1249677602:LM=1257919388:S=odm0Ys-53ZueXfZG;path=/; domain=.google.com");

OK just tried it on Firefox 3.6 and it works so I think it is 3.7 related.

It works for me in every browser EXCEPT K-Meleon for some reason. Not sure why, but it does work in IE8, Safari, Chrome, FF,

Opera etc etc.

Not sure I like the deep blue color like that. But it's certainly speedy, amazing considering how fast Google is already.

You can force the .com locale by going to http://google.com/ncr

Thanks for that, got on to .com but then it send me to an 'automated request error' page. after retrying it worked fine.

Here is correct code:

java script:void(document.cookie="PREF=ID=20b6e4c2f44943bb:U=4bf292d46faad806:TM=1249677602:LM=1257919388:S=odm0Ys-53ZueXfZG;path=/; domain=.google.com");

Edit: make sure "java script" is all together in order to work!

People stop posting 'this is the correct code' IPB will always add a space between Java and script rendering it not the correct code.
