    In the home page, the button of Images, Video, News, etc. are now on the top left corner.

    Previously they where below the Google logo.

    I don't know why, but I don't like how it looks. Is there any way to return to the original look?

    I haven't noticed a way to change it back, but I'm a big fan of the new look. Much cleaner, IMO.

    I like the new streamlined look, and I'm really starting to like iGoogle, so long MSN.com, so long...

    I personally don't like the new position of the buttons. I always find myself searching for the Images and Web button now until I remember it's in that new spot. Eventually I'll get used to it, but I liked the old style better. Two thumbs up for iGoogle though.

    Yeah, I noticed this a little while ago as well. Subtle change, but I like it. I'm all about efficiency and minimalism. :cool:

    Wow. I don't like it. Not to say I'm lazy or anything, but the buttons are too far away from the search button. I know it sounds crazy, but it's just not my thing. I haven't visited Google homepage since last school term, so I didn't even know it changed. :p

    I am with you there...I didn't notice a thing.

    Now that it has been mentioned I do notice the changes but I tend to read what I am looking for, rather then just clicking on where it has 'always' been. So it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    I like it, but they need some better themes for iGoogle. (Where did that name come from anyway?)

    I find the change kind of jarring, but then I realized that I rarely--if ever--visit the google home page anymore, opting instead to use the built-in toolbar in Firefox/Safari/whatever.
