Playing in Google's sandbox

If you are looking for a new way to experience searching ala Google, give SearchMash a try! It appears to be where the Google search engineers are trying their hands at a Web 2.0 interface to Google search, though I've not tested to see whether or not the same results are returned in both cases. The landing page is, as you'd expect, very sparse, but the results pane is much more functional. You can tab between results for 'Web', 'Images', 'Video', 'Maps', 'Blogs', and 'Wikipedia'. The site also uses Snap to provide a snapshot image of the pages returned and mousing over an inconspicuous tab on the left hand side of the page presents a list of resent searches. It's very usable and I'm kinda digg'n it!
