Sydney: Google has rolled out its revamped search pages that give results more space by shifting the tools menu to the top of the screen.

The firm said that change was intended to streamline search pages and make the layout on desktop computers consistent with those on smartphones and tablets.

“You''ll notice a new simpler, cleaner design on the search results page,” Google Search lead designer Jon Wiley said in a blog post.

“There''s a bit more breathing room, and more focus on the answers you''re looking for, whether from web results or from a feature like the Knowledge Graph,” Wiley added.

According to the Herald Sun, the search giant first rolled out new results pages in the United States.

The firm said it wanted to make them available to users in other regions ‘as soon as we can’.

Google also said that as part of its effort to streamline the service, it would stop letting people use background images to customise search homepages effective November 16, the report said.
