Try this link in 800×600. Depending on how much chrome you’re using you might get less than two full search results above the fold. And this page doesn’t even include Froogle results (it does include news though). I don’t pay attention because I have 8 times that resolution in front of me, and my browser windows are usually sized at 800*1200. I wonder how much web design is a factor leading to people buying bigger or multiple screens and switching to higher resolutions.
I for one know the space I want to search in (e.g. general web, news sources or newsgroups) and I prefer the tabbed/delimited model to the mixed pages they’re experimenting with, but from a marketing perspective it’s fair enough for Google to cross-promote its specialty search engines.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
