Google has equipped its Gmail email with new Search box to help end-users browse the web from without leaving their account and also added additional emoticons.

"Sometimes I'd get distracted and forget to go back to Gmail, and I'd have to go through it all again when I remembered what I'd been doing. With the new Google Search experiment in Gmail Labs, my problem is solved. Type your search in, and a window (like a chat window, but a bit bigger) appears at the bottom of your screen with the first few search results," software engineer Adam de Boor wrote in a blog post.

The optional feature, which can be activated in Gmail Labs under the Settings tab, does not require any potentially disruptive tabbing or application switching.

Google has added a number of new features to Gmail over the past few months, and in addition to the new search box tool, the firm also added more than a thousand emoticons from Japan and also "rewritten Gmail" for mobile devices and offline use.
