Google Search Box Vanishing from Omnibar Searches in Chrome Dev

Like many people I use Google Chrome’s omnibar/address bar/URL spot to make my Google searches.

It’s quicker than heading over to Google.com itself because it’s always there, always ready.

But lately I’ve noticed that searches made from the omnibar are behaving a bit differently in Chrome OS Dev: the Google Search results page no longer shows a search box on the page.

Instead your search term remains in the omnibar, badged by ‘Google Search’.

As with anything that happens in the Dev channel there’s no guarantee that this behaviour is staying, but for now it’s something to be aware of if you’re also an omni-searcher like myself..
