Google updates Android Market, download now if you dare

Google announced an update of the Android Market this weekend, brining many changes to the way that Android users download apps. The market has been completely revamped visually, ditching the multiple tabs of application information in favor of a single long page. Also, in an effort increase the number of high quality games in the market, the maximum file size of apps has been increased to 50MB. Perhaps of most interest to users will be the change to the refund policy, which is being slashed down dramatically from 24 hours to 15 minutes.
Google will be pushing the update out to anyone running Android 1.6 or higher. However, if you just can't wait for the update, you can download the updated Market from XDA Developers right now. However, reports are popping up in the download thread about the Market force closing, so update with typical caution.
