You might have seen “Related queries” in Google. Here’s “Something different”

Google has been rolling on a high – First it’s logos, then Google Instant was launched. Google is experimenting out with new stuff every given moment and I found one such today.

We have always seen Related Queries under the top results in the first search results page of Google as below:

Today I found a feature called “Something different” alive, in the new nav-bar panel, to the left of the search results, that was released roughly a couple of months ago. You can take a look at it in the screenshot below:

Something different – The new feature that I found in Google, again, like Google Instant, is live only in its .com version. Let’s hope it reaches other regional versions as soon as possible.

Do you think this new feature might be handy or will this distract the end-user? Drop your views in that golden comment box.
