Google removed the Beta tag today from Google News after almost 4 years! This comes after the recent addition of the ‘Recommended’ and ‘Most Popular’ section to the Google News Home Page. Ever notice how Google thrives on classifying things as Beta? Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge Google fan, but I just find that interesting. I think they realize that the ‘Beta’ tag spikes interest in people.
