OT: New google search results format

Anyone noticed the new search results format from google?
I can't use it anymore. They made the font too tiny to read, and I can't CTRL-Scroll my way to a bigger font.
I swear, those bastards at google just make it harder and harder to use.

If you're using Firefox you can just hit Ctrl++ There's an option under View|Zoom to set whether it sooms the page or just the text. Maybe an IE user can post the equivalent assuming there's one.

Actually, I just tried it on IE, although I am a FF used 99.9% of the time, and it works the same way cntl + to get larger, cntl - to get smaller.

Well, yes and no, depending on if they use that stylesheet BS like some (like Google now) do. I tried it in firefox, and it does work, but not in the aging IE browser that I overwhelmingly prefer to use.
There was nothing wrong with Google before, but now they broke it, at least for me.
Bastards.
Thanks for the reference point, though.

Too bad there are people in the world with this kind of attitude. You are using a product that costs you absolutely nothing (ZERO), and you bitch and complain about it and call the company "Bastards".

I use Google a lot, and will keep using it, but that does not mean I can't note in passing that their quest to be Kewel is having an adverse affect on their usefulness. Their news and groups search functions have been crippled or broken for some time. And this 'instant search' thing is silly, and a bandwidth sucker. I can wait the half-second extra it takes to press 'enter', and keep the packet volume down. I'll also note how the hits for the big ad customers magically go to the top of the stack, so you either have to exclude them from your search string, or go through multiple pages to see 'real' hits. Guess I need to start giving Bing a chance more often.
I wonder what the rest of the free sites will do, when it sinks in on advertisers about how many people use FF and AB+, and never see their ads? Not all of them can bury may-as-well-be-ads in the delivered content, like Google does.

....and sometimes users want to see the ads. I live in a rural area and must do much of my shopping online. The ads have some advantages. Other features, not so much. OTOH, that's the great thing about the net. No one is being forced to use Google.

The font on a google search I did seemed to be big enough. And I was able to hold the control key while pressing the + key to enlarge the font even more.
A while back I wound up with some sort of malware that had to do with Google. Every search I did with google wound up re-directing me to pages that had nothing to do with what I was searching for. I wound up having to restore the system to a restore point from a Month previous in order to get rid of it.

It's a browser problem. Works for me with Firefox, Chrome, and Safari on my iMac. The browser bar has to be configured from your preferences panel.
