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."
