Windows 7: IE8 vs IE9

IE8 vs IE9

Hi folks. I have a question about the new (relatively) Internet Explorer 9. I had downloaded the IE9 but found that, unlike IE8, it does not have a Google search bar right in the main frame of the browser. To me, this is a big drawback. Is it possible to add this search bar. I think I know the answer but wanted to check with someone smarter than me with computer's but there are no 10 year olds around so I thought I'd embarrass myself and ask here.

From what I've tested, you can just search in the URL bar, similar to opera and chrome. About time MS caught onto that TBH

You can also add google tools bar, but I don't think you can refind the IE8 look.

But for add Youtube, it's manual because it's not present in the IE9 list.
