Google Search 2.0

Been wondering what those new boxes popping up on Google’s results page are? In an effort to make their search engine more interactive, Google has launched WikiSearch, and, so far, the reactions are mixed. Googlers can now read and write comments on search results, and customize results by reordering and deleting links. Michael Arrington at TechCrunch comments that Google search was "one of the few things on the Internet that isn't [broken]" but finds the new layout "a mess of arrows and troll comments." Google will track their users’ preferences in order to improve the product.
