    has anyone else noticed that sometimes the google search page looks different? looks like they are testing out their new layout from time to time and switch back to the regular one sometimes.

    also in the new google layout it shows you youre location under the search engine.....kinda scary

    it changes from time to time and once i cleared my browser history it reverted back to normal google.

    it would show your location right underneath the searchbox. one time it showed exactly where i live (city, state) and just before it was showing my ISP's location

    oh and im using my secondary computer right now which is using IE8 currently.

    just wanted to make sure i wasnt the only one gettting this

    I've experienced this also. Google always has experiments going on ;).
