It's not browser dependent - I've seen it in Opera, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and even K-Meleon.

I've seen that message for what seems like ages. Might even be years by now and it has always irritated me to no end.

only bothers me on my blackberry, i just glaze over it on my laptop, seen it for prolly 4 years at least...

lol. well, it's 'something' specific. I swear I've never seen it before tonite. I was trying out running IE from within linux using codeweavers. thought I'd try a search and there it was.
Ah well. All the latest in 4 year old news, brought to you courtesy of wheel :).

FWIW, I can't see this in either Safari or FireFox (my usual browsers), so it was news to me! :)

I've only seen the "Tip" get displayed after I click on the "Search" input rather than pressing Enter. And it doesn't get triggered every time, either - I just tested that.

I think most of us have been getting this tip for ages
it's just that we didn't ( bother to ) notice it

Oh I'd have noticed it. The tip is hogging my number one spot :).

I get that pretty consistently with a "clean" version of IE (no cookies, no login). It relies on the passing of the &btnG=Google+Search parameter, I believe. It's years old, anyway (no idea if it was discontinued for a while) ;)

*** It relies on the passing of the &btnG=Google+Search parameter ***
Yet another reason to cut extra parameters out of Google URLs when you paste them into a forum or blog, or save them as a bookmark; however I do wonder if the Google techs were clever enough to then hide the message if the referrer wasn't a place where a Google Search Button could actually exist. I haven't checked.
