Google is working to improve the search experience for tablet users. Recently, the company rolled out changes that were made with tablet users in mind. First up, the company simplified the layout of search result pages and increased the size of the contents on a page. Most notably, text, buttons and other touch targets are now larger. Google believes these changes should make it faster and easier to browse on a tablet.

Google added a pull-down menu to the search button underneath of the search box. From this menu, you'll be able to tell Google if you want to search Images, Videos, Places, Shopping, or another area of Google.

If you're looking for images using the Google search engine, you'll now see bigger image previews and get the ability to scroll continuously. The image thumbnails should also load more quickly thanks to some of the changes.

iPad and Android 3.1+ tablet users should be able to take advantage of this improved search experience right away. To try it for yourself, simply visit Google.com from your tablet.

Wait... Google released an improvement, and they allow their monopoly service to support it on tablets using a competitors OS?!?! Have they learned *nothing* from Microsoft???

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

«[M]onopoly service» ? Which service is that - the search engine ? The Search Engline List (www.thesearchenginelist.com/) lists a plethora. Android ? Even here I seem to remember that alternatives exist. Am I, like a certain young lady, the more deceived ?...
