Google just got bigger. Not the company, but the search box on its home page, that is.
The Mountain View, California, company has been loathe to tamper with the clean and uncluttered look of its home page but the Internet giant this week increased the size of the search box.
"Our search box is growing in size," Google vice president Marissa Mayer said in a blog post. "The new, larger Google search box features larger text when you type so you can see your query more clearly."
"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 supersized search box," she added.
Google is the overwhelming leader of the lucrative US search and advertising market with a market share of around 65 percent, according to online tracking firm comScore.
