Google aims for IE 7 spotlight

Have you noticed the new search bar in Internet Explorer 7?

Well, Google certainly has.

The new version of Microsoft's browser, which was just made publicly available in beta form, has a search bar at the top right-hand corner that can be configured to query from any number of search engines, including Google and MSN Search.

Aiming to come out on top, Google is apparently prompting those who visit Google from within IE 7 to pick it as the search engine for that search bar.

A box with a red arrow points to the search bar and states "make Google your search engine in Internet Explorer, with a button users can use to "Make Google my search."

A quick visit to Yahoo and MSN's Search page did not appear to show a similar approach.
