Google announced it is revamping its blogging service by offering five new templates that users can tap--for free--to add a fresh look to their blogs.

According to Google, the new templates, which take advantage of HTML5, AJAX and CSS3 technology, offer four key features:

Infinite scrolling: read more posts without having to reload or click to a second page
New layouts: different views suited to different types of blogs
Speed: download images as you view them, not all at once in advance
Interactivity: there are now more ways to experience and engage with blog content

Want to see how your Blogger blog will look with a new template? Add "/view" to the end of your blog's URL to give the fresh looks a whirl (for example: http://www.thecrosbykitchen.com becomes http://www.thecrosbykitchen.com/view. Find out more about the templates, as well as how to disable them, here.
