I think it's the opposite, google is NOT scared to try something new. Though I do think the joke is funny, and have mixed feelings about the background until it crashes my browser or something... It was a nice graphic though

But its not new. If they did it before anyone else then fine, but it jsut seems every change to google's search engine recently has adjusted it to look and act more like bing.

First the layout, and now this.

Yes we do... I have a habit of always typing in my URLS. for instance I rarely use bookmarks, I always try to remember how to manually navigate, though sometimes it's near impossible...

I do use the searchbox from time to time though.

What about when you use the box and it takes over your current browser tab

I like the white clean logo but the background is annoying.

Its not a matter of who took what, its just funny that this giant named Google is suddenly making all these changes to their relativly unchaged search engine.
