I don't want to sound discouraging, but is this really worth a post to a mailing list? I mean, I'm all for updating the UI and thanks for doing this, but this change is so small...

I mostly posted because decent design updates in MediaWiki core are rare, and I think this is a good example of how we could easily be using mediawiki.ui more widely. 

If you don't like the volume on the Design list you can always unsubscribe.

Hey all,

Thanks to Chad and Bartosz, https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/94276/ has been merged, and with the next MediaWiki core releases you should see two things:

1. the input box on the search page will be larger
2. the button will be a larger, blue button similar to the style seen on login, create account, and some other forms

You can see a screenshot of what this looks like at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/File:Search-UI-minor-tweak.png or by searching on Beta Labs (http://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/)
