Good or bad?

I was on the Firefox Addons site just now. I clicked on the search box in the header and it expanded to twice its length. "Neat!" I thought to myself and then i realised I had forgotten what I wanted to search for!

The expanding search box is intended to increase usability but it surprised me and in the end made my task more difficult. So is it good or bad?

That is pretty nifty, but kinda unnecessary!

Yeah, I thought the exact same thing.... and I too forgot what I was looking for!

A coincidence - I spotted this about ten minutes before reading your blog (first time on the forum!). I agree - it's distracting and unnecessary.
