Google has increased the size of the search box and fonts on its home and results pages, giving users more space to enter their queries. The search giant said it hopes the move will make it easier for people to use the service and select results. In a blog post, Marissa Mayer, Google Vice President, said: “Although this is a very simple idea and an even simpler change, we’re excited about it. It symbolizes our focus on search and because it makes our clean, minimalist homepage even easier and more fun to use. “The new, larger Google search box features larger text when you type so you can see your query more clearly. It also uses a larger text size for the suggestions below the search box, making it easier to select one of the possible refinements.”
