Flickr rolling out some major improvements

George Oates, a Flickr staff member, just announced that Flickr is getting some major upgrades. The biggest one is boolean search. They're also unifying and improving a bunch of navigation elements.

Highlights:

New Navigation
We've rationalized the site's navigation, cleaned it up and (hopefully) made it much easier for both new users and experienced users. The new system breaks down into: You, Your Contacts, Your Groups & The World (aka Explore).

New Search
Search has been greatly improved (with full booleans and multiple tags, you'll be AND, OR, NOT and +ing and -ing your heart out), We've also added a search box to the top of every page and redesigned the results pages, so you can search for anything from anywhere.
