Google refines Drive apps with new icons, smaller toolbars

Google has updated its Google Drive online apps with a refreshed user interface. Google Docs, Drawings, Sheets, Slides, and Forms now include a colorful icon that returns users to Drive itself, while the toolbar section at the top has been made smaller, allowing more of the screen to be taken up by the files being worked on, and seemingly brings it closer in visual style to installable office suites.

Google Web Designer released, offers simplified HTML5 animation creation

Google Web Designer has launched as a free beta, and is available to download for Windows and Mac. The tool is a WYSIWIG editor for HTML5 and CSS3, allowing users to create HTML5-based animations for websites in a supported "Quick" or more detailed advanced mode, with resulting content also able to be pushed to DoubleClick and AdMob advertising networks.
