Google Docs team is going to unveil "a brand new shiny interface" over the next few weeks. They have already rolled out some of the new features, like new search operators which make searching through Google Docs easier than ever.
The new search operators are similar to those available in Gmail inbox. Like you can search with "from:email@example.com" to search for all the files shared with you by firstname.lastname@example.org. More operators are documented at the announcement post.
It's obvious that the changes are made to take on Microsoft's new web-based version of Office which is currently in technical preview and only a fortunate few had access to it.
