Bring Back the Small Google Search Box

By Alex Chitu

If you don’t like Google’s new search box and you think the font size is way too big, there’s a Greasemonkey script that brings back the old interface. I’ve tested the script in Firefox and Google Chrome, so you should try it if you use one of these browsers.
