Quickgooglesilver?

Google Quicksearch

Three months ago, I came up with an idea that makes it easier for users to find what they’re looking for: a search box in the middle of the desktop. It’s very accessible — all you have to do is press your Ctrl key twice. After some experimentation, people are telling us they like it and use it.
