    Google has been busy making improvements to its search engine and the Web giant continued its efforts this week, updating its mobile search system to make answers for certain queries "richer, more beautiful, and more interactive."

    The updated mobile search system adds Google Now-esque data boxes to results showing information like flight schedules, conversions, and weather forecasts. The idea is to help you more quickly and easily find the answer you're looking for, without having to click on any other links. The changes are rolling out to those searching on google.com in English on a smartphone or tablet, Google announced on Thursday.

    Search for the weather on your device, for example, and at the top of the search results you'll now see a visually appealing 10-day and hourly weather forecast with which you can interact. Search for a particular flight number like "Delta Air Lines Flight 1262" and you'll see a new flight progress indicator with arrival and departure times, allowing you to quickly find out the status of a flight.

    Seriously, we all know what it means to always " improve " something which works and is simple to use, in the end it will make life much more complicated, at least that's my experience.;)
