I just came here to post about this... I'm seeing it too! At first I thought I was zoomed in in my browser or something...

My search buttons look different, they look Google Apps-y and not like the OS X default a few minutes before

[put at-character here]hebbet Strange i'm not seeing it yet here on Firefox / IE8 – Windows 7. Google.de and Google.fr are big. I'm only seeing it when changing the URL like this, but it will come.

This doesn't have anything to do with the Patent from 2004.

Re: Websonic.nl,
No that image aint new, I've seen it several times on my Mac, when I've searched for something, and then clicks on the Google logo and drags it away. That made it look like that.

Stoor, as WebSonic.nl says, I think it's a new version of the old sprite image:

Old:


google.com/images/nav_logo6.pn ...


New:


google.com/images/nav_logo7.pn ...



Note the two new arrow icons.

I can't believe it that Marissa Mayer is so excited about this change:

I hope they make the size changable in the preferences because for my eyes the old search box was allright.
