Well, if it was labeled "Search:" maybe. As it is, the only hint it can be 
used to search the Internet is the "G" mini-icon. 

If the search bar were independent of the location bar, it would be easier to 
disable for those who do dislike it. I tried doing that with a change to the 
rc file, but it kept popping out on new pages, if I remember correctly.
