New Google Search Hacked for Early Access

Google may have grabbed everyone's attention recently with the Wave Beta and Chrome OS, but it clearly hasn't forgotten where its roots are...

The Internet giant has stepped up the latest iteration of its new Google Search engine with a revamped side bar and improved indexing and performance. On top of this there is a new user interface and now you can try it all out ahead of schedule.

The guys at Gizmodo have found four easy steps to do this:

  • Go to Google.com.
  • Once it loads, enter this code into your web browser's URL address field:
    javascript:void(document.cookie="PREF=ID=20b6e4c2f44943bb:U=4bf292d46faad806:TM=1249677602:LM=1257919388:S=odm0Ys-53ZueXfZG;path=/; domain=.google.com");
    There shouldn't be any http://google.com in front of that. Just that code.
  • Hit enter.
  • Reload or open a new Google.com page
Early reports have been extremely positive with Google's claims largely bearing out. It is noted however that not all sections in the new Google Search have been enabled so it still remains a work in progress.

Enough to stop the momentum of Microsoft Bing? I very much doubt it, but it's certainly a nice parry in a battle with is likely to rage on and on and on and on and...

...on.

Update: And how to cancel access should you wish to return to the current version!
