Actually, Google testing some interesting ideas off and away from their flagship search product. If you go to the following URL:

www.searchmash.com

You can see that Google is testing some new interface ideas in the area of search(love the pagination and the ability to play videos inline).

Personally, I don't much care for the new Ask search results screen. I'd rather have the search box across the top, the results flush left, and I like the way Google handles the right rail on SearchMash better than Ask.

Just my 2 cents.

Kyle - you are quite right. I overlooked searchmash in my keyboard stampede to put this post up. Searchmash offers many of the same data as AskX. However, I much prefer the Ask interface (searchmash currently looks very rough around the edges).

Google may not be innovating on the surface, but ime it still gives the best search results (both web and blog), and that's why I use them!

There's one more.

AOL and their "FullView" feature is in this space as well.

Came across it in this Search Engine Journal post at the beginning of the year...the author's enthusiasm made me want to check it out ( normall not an AOL fan ).

Check out the Spiderman3 results ( pretty frickin sweet ).

http://search.aol.com/aolcom/search?query=Spiderman%203&invocationType=smartbox.enter

It's now in the top 3 engines I use. I hit it to check stocks, news stories ( like the lady astronaut ).

The thing I like ( as with Ask X ) is that it saves time sifting through 30 pages of links or 3 tabs to find something related to what I am looking for.

And for what it's worth the Searchmash takes too long to load the side tabs.

My $.04 cents :)
