The "Search" button on Win32/Linux is now in all-caps. All upper-case text is harder to read, and more likely to be ignored, than mixed-case text, since it lacks word-shapes that facilitate legibility, as explained in any typography 101 class. Moreso, the only use of all-caps that I've seen used by trained designers is when it's used sparing to contrast with non-all caps text in a very different typeface. Since we don't use any other typefaces in our UI, this reason shouldn't apply. If you want the Search button to stand out, may I suggest coming up with a more effective and visually savvy means of expressing it?

Thanks for this feedback. We are currently testing this. This is one of the proposals in order to make users more familiar with the new search URL bar feature. BTW as any typography 102 class goes on to explain, the legibility is negatively affected only when uppercase is used within larger amounts of body text. Here we use it for one single word which is more meant to be a glyph rather than a textual expression. Bu as said earlier we are still tweaking these things and looking at alternatives.

I DON'T BELIEVE IT! FIRST THE BUTTON USED ALL CAPS, NOW IT USES ALL CAPS AND * BOLD*. DO WE REALLY BELIEVE THAT USERS ARE STUPID, OR IS THAT JUST THE IMPRESSION WE WISH TO PROMOTE?

fixed how? I wasn't aware we'd resolved the issue. Moreover, there are two search buttons. One in the Url bar and one in the sidepanel. I believe when Mr. Elig wrote the bug he was referring to the url button. My only requirement is that they both be exactly the same. (once the style issue is resolved)

doh commercial build is using a separate DTD apparently.
Move to M20 for later polish.

I assume this was corrected a while ago, so marking fixed.
