Google Books updated

The Google Books website received a new interface this week, and I think it's going to be a big improvement in usability.

They're saying that it's cleaner and more consistent (with other Google sites), and it is. It also uses more white space to separate the various components, but that unfortunately leaves less room for books.

On the other hand,  I'd say that the new design is easier to use on the iPad. The extra does help make it easier to click on just the link I'm aiming at.

BTW, the new design won't have any effect on mobile visitors; they're redirected to the mobile site and it hadn't been changed yet.

About Nate Hoffelder (11598 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
