Google testing new search results interface?

Google's new interface?

A few people are reporting that Google is testing out a new design for its search results page. The alleged new design has a sidebar on the left that shows the number of search results for Google's various services (Images, News, etc.) as small green bars, with links for Advanced Search, Preferences, and Search History below. The search results are displayed as usual in the rest of the page. At first I was skeptical, but cruising the comments on Digg turns up a number of reports from different users all with screenshots of the same layout but with different browsers and search results. One user even posted a RAR file with the source of one such results page. Sure, it could all be an elaborate hoax, but it's more likely that Google is testing out its new interface on a few users here and there. When and whether the rest of us will get to see it in action is anyone's guess.
