Google adds hidden services menu to mobile site
Google is always working to make its products better no matter what platform you happen to be using, and one major point in that strategy is to make sure that the web apps for Google products are the best they can be. Today, Google has updated its mobile site to make it easier to get to other Google services.

Google adds hidden services menu to mobile site
The new addition to the website is something that will look very familiar to Android and iOS users because it is the same hidden services menu that has become part of many mobile apps like Google+, Facebook, YouTube, and more. Now, if you tap the new menu icon found in the top left hand corner of the page, a hidden menu will slide out with links to all Google services. 

It will certainly make it easier to navigate around on the web, and if your browser is up to snuff, you should also see some nice bounce animations when scrolling through the list. Of course, those are patented by Apple, and have already been removed from Android, so we'll see how long that extra flare is there.

Love el Goog staring apple in the face and adding the bounce effect, as if to say, "Yes, we know our animation bounces. And yes, we know you have a patent on it. WHAT OF IT?!?"

It's possible Google is rolling out the feature, so just check back tomorrow.
