While the Google Developers site received its massive redesign quite a while ago, its sibling AOSP one at source.android.com has remained an ugly duckling. Until about an hour ago.

The difference is huge - it's like it went from Cupcake days to Jelly Bean in the blink of an eye. It would be nice if you could update Android the same way, wouldn't it?

Here are some images of the old (visible at archive.org) and new sites side-by-side (can you guess which one is which?):

      A Googol is a very large number. Try again.

      Actually googol is correct in the context: 1 googol = 1 x 10^100

      You don't know what Google is named after AND you think something can be a multiple of a company? AND it's "in the title"

    What does Gogol Bordello have to do with anything?

    Speaking of redesigns, the Android Police mobile site seems to have received a minor one itself. Articles are now presented as Google Now style cards. They are expandable, too!

    Though, it's also possible it's been like this for a while and I'm just now noticing it. Haha.
