Google testing search-friendly tabs in current versions of Chrome

Google Chrome and Chrome OS currently in testing with search-friendly tabs (NASDAQ:GOOG)

In the latest stable versions of Chrome and Chrome OS, Mountain View-based Google has been testing search-enabled tabs. These search-enabled tabs have been popping up in Chrome since December, but you've needed to run the test version of the browser to see it.




Google has now opened it up to a small number of users running stable copies of Chrome and Chrome OS, and all you need to do is have Google as your default search engine to see a search box appear in every new tab - a very nice, functional addition to new tabs. Google hasn't said whether this new search function will leak into every users Chrome, but it said that previous tests have been "encouraging."
