Pictured in the image above is a revamped search interface for tablets Google’s been tinkering with. According to the Google Operating System blog, tweaks include a new settings button below the search box that lets you disable SafeSearch and use the advanced search filters. Another prominent change: The most popular search silos are now lined up right below the search box rather than being tucked away under the More menu. This lets you re-use your search term to retrieve web results, images, videos and news with a single tap. The new horizontal layout also suggests that Google could soon retire the lefthand side navigation links which are still present in desktop search. A change for the better, if you ask us.
