Google has started testing a new layout for their search results page. As shown below from the screenshot, the new layout displays a new color scheme and more white space.

It was confirmed from a Google representative that they have indeed starting testing this. Some of the biggest changes are the fact that they are separating each result with dashed lines, and that the space between each result has increased significantly.

While Google routinely tests many different things, this is a pretty significant update for the leading search engine. Obviously they are gathering data to see the reaction of the new changes before the roll out to the masses.

What are your thoughts on the new layout?
