Steps to reproduce:

I notice the new "Search topsites" on Nightly. See

Actual results:

I was very confused what these do. So hovered with my mouse on them, but did not dare to click because I well was not sure what would be happening.

So I hovered with my mouse over them to learn more. But nothing happens

Expected results:

Have a small info text like "Search Google" or "Search Amazon" vs. "Go to Twitter" for the normla Top sites icons. Or "Search with Google directly from the location bar"; or just "Search" vs "Visit".
I guess "Search with xxx" would be perfect as it is like this already in the URL bar, see based on
