If you logged into Google yesterday and thought for a brief moment you had been redirected to Bing, that’s because Google’s brand new search engine refresh has seriously cramped Microsoft’s style. In all seriousness and to be completely fair to Google, this design has been in beta for quite some time, but that doesn’t change the fact it’s almost a spitting image of Bing…minus the kooky backgrounds. On the left-hand side of the site you’ll now find the search tools which will help you narrow down your results from everything from a general query to specifics such as news articles, blog posts, images and more. It’s definitely one of those things you need to see to fully appreciate, so hit up the jump, check out the video and let us know your thoughts.

P.S. Google’s mobile search page has been reworked in a similar fashion.
