The Google Base Blog announced that they have updated the Google Base home page to make it easier to use. Garett Rogers over at Googling Google has a deeper look at those changes. Basically, merchants were confused on the different options available to them, so Google made it clearer. A significant change from a searcher's standpoint is that they have removed the search box from the Google Base home page. You can still search, but you need to be within Google Base already to do so, such as from the dashboard. This makes it probably the first Google search product not to feature a search box.
