Google Expands the Search Box Size and Everyone Goes Crazy

Harrumph. Call me crazy, but the news that Google has increased the size of the search box on its home page shouldn’t really be that big of a deal. But then I guess it is to some. To be honest when I first looked at the before and after page, I didn’t notice a fundamental difference. But then I rarely use the Google home page to search anyway, preferring the search box in a browser.

What do you use? The home page, the search box, or another provider?
