The kids have gone back to school and Apple has made its annual iPod/iTunes announcement, so perhaps that will explain why Google is making a bit of a thing about the marginal increase in the size of its search box.
On Safari on a Mac I can’t see any difference, so either it hasn’t rolled out yet or it’s something that only Chrome users can see.
In any case, if I want to make the search box bigger I just press Cmd and +. In fact, that works in a lot of places in Mac OS X and I don’t really need other people making themselves look bigger by default.
Nothing has changed in the search results â€” Google already added new features a few months ago. Nope, just a slightly bigger search box (if you’re using the “right” (read, Google-developed) browser.
“Google has always been first and foremost about search, and we’re committed to building and powering the best search on the web â€” now available through a supersized search box.”
Hardly supersized. Now, if you’d like to hand me your CSS file I’ll show you supersized. It’ll be nearly unusable, but that’s not the point is it?
