MSN Search Unveils Cleaner Look

Just noticed that MSN seems to have taken the cleaner look it promised to rollout on July 1 and made it available on the regular site, http://search.msn.com.

Anyone else seen the switch? I'm outside the US, so it could be hitting me and others selectively with the new look.

Some background on the change and the fact this is cosmetic, not a rollout of the new MSN search engine, can be found in this past article I wrote: New Look In July, New Search Engine Later, Says MSN

Interesting

We get different results from Yahoo and MSN... guess they do not let as many pages from the same base domain as compared to Yahoo... I am 3 in MSN and 5 in Yahoo with the same top 2 above me in both.

The UK one looks cleaner, ie. without all the directory stuff below the search box...not sure if that has always been that way though.

I thought the new look was going to have the ads at the top in a box? I did not see it here.

I did not see any changes. They still have Featured Sites (numbered), then the Sponsored (bulleted), followed by Web Pages (numbered starting with 4) both on the beta and regular MSN search sites.

They do have the Sponsored Sites in a box also on the right sided of the page, but I think that has been like that for a while now.

Can you post an image of what you are seeing?

False alarm on my end, sorry! Got myself confused with the new look to come and the existing one. I did look over at the beta site, http://beta.search.msn.com, but they've actually stopped showing the new look over there. So, it's still wait for July.
