It should retain its current functionality though:
-ability to modify search mode
-ability to intelligently guess possible search terms
-ability to use recent search terms

Using this new style for the search box, it's possible to follow a logical workflow, from left to right:
- first, we choose "Search mechanism";
- then we type;
- then we do the search.
The magnifier icon is reassigned to start the basic search, which is standard behavior in virtually every modern application and webpage.
Advanced search is not lost, it's just re-accommodated in menu.
