Earlier today, Google revealed a secret project entitled Caffeine, the next generation of the company's Internet search engine. According to the official Google Webmaster Central Blog, a large team has been working on the project for the last several months, pushing the envelope on size, indexing speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness, and more.
By heading here, end-users will notice that the search engine looks the same. However, staff software engineer Sitaram Iyer and principal engineer Matt Cutts says that the new infrastructure sits under the hood, and that most users won't actually notice a difference in search results.
"But web developers and power searchers might notice a few differences, so we're opening up a web developer preview to collect feedback," they added. Currently the team wants "higher-level" feedback on the differences between the current search engine, and the caffeinated version used at the new link.
To provide feedback to Google, follow these simple steps:
Do a search at http://www2.sandbox.google.com/ and look on the search results page for a link at the bottom of the page that says "Dissatisfied? Help us improve." Click on that link, type your feedback in the text box and then include the word caffeine somewhere in the text box.
