Hi. I lead the design team for Google Search. We're aware of this and we're working on a fix. Thanks for the feedback.
Thank you Jon, we really appreciate it :)
Yea, we can't have any more bleeding eyes.
Of curiosity, how long do it take to roll out such changes — do you follow a predefined pattern for small iterations and bugs?
Should've used an SVG.
Oh man, couldn't agree more. SVG with PNG fallback for IE8 and below. Who cares if IE8- users have a slightly slower load, they deserve it.
Not only that, but I believe Google's general support is for current browser generation minus one, so IE9 would be the last IE they "support."
Thanks man, now that's going to annoy the shit out of me up until they decide to fix it.
Thanks a lot
Interesting that they’ll go for a scaled @2x PNG route for the logo, but other UI assets on the page are @1x only. Seems slap dash. Like it’s a prototype that went live accidentally.
But then it’s Google. Maybe they don’t care. Maybe a bit of design wonk, and a bit of extra bandwidth per visit aren’t big concerns for them.
Any google employees on DN that can speak to this?
Can't they use a custom font for modern browsers (with a png fallback)?
You had one job, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson!
I noticed this a while ago and it bothered me, surprised Google would let an issue like this go live
Thanks! Now that's all I can see.
Interesting find. Love the new homepage. It's so clean.
weird, the 2x version is fine – http://imgur.com/D8aRsal
Oh my, it's just a 2x version scaled down by the browser http://cl.ly/image/0e0M1b470d2u
