I'd also like to add my two cents and say that the "Google" logo
button looks nice, but is not intiutive from a UI perspective.
Because of the lack of edges and other canonical button-like
decoration, it is not immediately obivious that it IS a button. It
could just be a logo (e.g. "Search Powered by Google"). I'd suggest
either modifying the image to contain some additional button "look and
feel" or just keeping with a plain old, less sexy text button.
