Is anyone else bothered by the clutter that has lately come to the Google home page?

Clutter was the original reason I left Alta Vista for Google. I grant that Alta Vista, and other search engines, subsequently cleaned up their home pages, but Google have always defended the minimalist title. Now we see Google going down that road and I am not so sure I want to go with them.

Update (2/2008):  Google have kept the additions to a minimum and the additions have kept out of the way.  I can handle that.
