Description

18 years ago
In the great updates to the new Modern skin, the Search button is shorter (not
as tall as) the URL bar and looks a little squished as a result, and a bit weak
considering it's importance.

Search is the #1 activity people do within a browser - the button should be the
same height as the URL bar.  Part of the Usability theory was to make this look
like a field with a search/submit button on a web page - in that case the button
and the field are the same height.

The button feels a bit too "weak" as it is now.   If you made it smaller to look
more like the keyword drop down list, I would submit that is a mistake.  Nice
idea to balance the UI like that, but the Search button should be the strongest
button and the keyword button should be the weakest button, so they should not
balance each other.  If it looks better, you can go ahead and make the keyword
button smaller if that helps the overall UI as you increase the size of the
Search button.

Seems like the search button is as tall as the URL bar in modern.  Is there
something wrong with my vision, or is this fixed?
