Google "It's quite a challenge really: how does the Number 1 search engine on the web rewrite its search algorithm and test its effectiveness without hurting its current results and user-experience during the testing process? Sergey Brin and Larry Page seem to have figured it out: create a new search engine, and do your testing there! SearchMash.com is the evolution of Google, and should things go right, what Google will (soon enough) become. It tests a range of new features and methods of bringing information to the users' fingertips in more ways than immediately obvious to the eyes."

Is it just me or what, but I don't see links to cached pages ;) Often these pages are worth more then search results itself.

Otherwise nice - but somewhat too nice; google original layout seems more usable and informative to me. (Probably I'm getting old ;) )
