Google Makes Its Search Box Bigger
Fresh off of patenting its home page design, Google is throwing caution to the wind and messing with success: It’s making its search boxes bigger. (Gasp!)
The bigger search box will show both on the home page and on the top of Google’s search results pages.
Google’s Marissa Mayer says the bigger search box is better because the text you type is larger, and the Google Suggest dropdown text is also bigger. Mayer also says the bigger search box is “more fun to use” but I’ve been using it for the last hour and … well … I don’t feel like I’m having more fun. We’ll file that claim under “your mileage may vary.”
