Google Search Box Get Supersized

Discussion in 'Google' started by kattposh43, Sep 10, 2009.

    Google’s Marissa Mayer who is the VP for Search Products & User Experience there posted on the Google blog that they have changed the size of Google’s search box on the home and results page and it lands on Techmeme. A lot of people are downright confused and to an extent agitated why this piece of news should get so much attention. Though there are quite a few voices who consider it important though for no particular reason other than the fact that Google is doing it.

    Google has always been first and foremost about search, and we're committed to building and powering the best search on the web — now available through a super sized search box.

    For us, search has always been our focus. And, starting today, you’ll notice on our homepage and on our search results pages, our search box is growing in size. Although this is a very simple idea and an even simpler change, we’re excited about it — because it symbolizes our focus on search and because it makes our clean, minimalist homepage even easier and more fun to use.

    Interesting! I don't like how the font is larger too, it looks a bit tacky.

    I can not see the point in this change to be honest, I can only imagine Google have had a few complaints from users with impaired vision.

    Personally it appears as though I have the wrong resolution setting.

    I guess the people at the Googleplex are getting older and tired of leaning in close to ther monitors.
