SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Google began on Tuesday serving up revamped search pages that give results more room by shifting the tools menu to the top of the screen.

The California-based Internet titan said the change was intended to streamline search pages and make the layout on desktop computers consistent with those on smartphones and tablets.

"You'll notice a new simpler, cleaner design on the search results page," Google Search lead designer Jon Wiley said in a blog post.

"There's a bit more breathing room, and more focus on the answers you're looking for, whether from Web results or from a feature like the Knowledge Graph."
