    I think so, it seems to be centered and that is more important any how. Interesting search site, did you buy this script or did you create it yourself? Either way, good luck with the site.

    The design is very nice but IMO the search bar isn't big enough. At the size it is now, it doesn't draw enough attention to search functionality of the site.

    I like a search bar about the size of the one at www.ask.com.

    Looks good to me, it's definitely the focal point of the page.

    Yeah, it looks plenty big enough to me. You might even consider getting rid of the Find File button and center the search bar with this text in it: "Type in the file you want to find and click enter." Just a thought. It depends on your preference and if you don't want to have the search bar blank.

    I think it looks very good. The search bar is certainly big enough now. Nice, clean look.

    Are you also thinking having seasonal search bars, the way that Google dresses up it's logo for holidays and such? lol

    I think it looks about right, your eye drawn right to it

    Off Topic:

    I'm using IE6 (not my fault we haven't upgraded yet) but the title text has a flat colour to the background it's not textured. It would be nice if it was textured too, if you are going to and just haven't got around to that yet then please ignore me.

    hmmm looks pretty bad...
    try it in firefox if possible, or update your IE.
    it should look much nicer.
    thanks

    Looks fine in IE and Firefox. I don't see any need to use the textured background in the search box.

    I think this an element review and it should be there, and not here (obviously, you have to review others in order to be able to post). In answer to your question: Yes, it is big enough
