Google Sticky Frog

Looks like more and more searchers are seeing a brand new design test from Google in their core search results. This test shows a rounded search box that sticks to the top as you scroll through the search results.

Screen shots of the test first originated via Reddit, which was first covered at Search Engine Journal. I then got Google to confirm this test and they said "We're always experimenting with new ways to improve the Search experience for our users." Yes, they are always testing.

Since then, in the past 12 hours or so, I have seen a lot more people notice the new design. Here are some new screen shots:
