This is quite possibly the coolest search box I have ever seen. Way to go, Design Disease. So often search boxes are the last thing on a designer’s mind, yet it’s so easy to remove all the default styles and plop a wild background image behind the search input. I dig this kind of detail.

Update: Smashing Magazine put up a massive search article that talks about customization and design considerations. Great stuff.
