Quick access to Google voice search in Chrome

With voice recognition getting better and better by the day, more and more users want to use Google’s voice search.

Google recently updated Chrome to include Google Now-like voice searching right from Google’s home page, so the feature is definitely being pushed more towards the mainstream.

Even though the feature now looks prettier than before, it’s still quite a pain to access if all you need is a quick search.
