Truth about Google?

December 29, 2005

Dan Norman writes an essay about the "truth" on Google's simplicity. He points that Google, in fact, is creating a facade where it creates the illusion of simplicity by not showing the information all at once. Other Google services like Google Maps, etc. have to be "dug" in order to be accessed, in contrast to MSN or Yahoo, which shows everything at once.

My take on this is that Google is, first and foremost, a search engine. Google may have adopted a different approach to it, but its "one-text box-button" look has actually worked. Why? It gives the web surfer focus on the task at hand, which is to search for something.
