Google Navigational Site Search Boxes

Google is going to release a new great feature for top result searching. Navigational Site Search Boxes will allow the users to get a faster and easier result of searching. For example, if you're searching for specific content or section of a site, it's clear that you want to go to that site searching what you want.
The idea comes from realizing of Google that people could want to go to a specific section of a site, so it started to include sitelinks, an automatically-generated list of popular places from a site.
The links shown under the search result are maybe not always the exact one you want to get, but they might save you click and time spent on sites that are difficult to navigate.
There are some sites out there that contently have a lot of things and their search box could be more important than a navigational menu. Currently Google has added this site search box below the sitelinks to some limited sites that allows you to restrict your query to the first search result. By now the search box is narrowed for a small sites like: Flickr, YouTube, Metacafe, Amazon, Craigslist, SourceForge.

To mention is that this new feature is still not available for all users, but it's going to get rolled out to all Google data centers.
