Remember when Google’s search tools were located on the left side of the results? Not anymore. They now appear on the top right. A weird move, considering that Google rarely changes it’s search layout. They have in the past included more rich-media results like video and images but the faceted options have always been on the left. I must say that it now looks a lot cleaner. Using a jQuery effect to employ a semi-drop down like menu seems like it would be more natural for people to add their filters.
