Interested in Becoming a #beta #tester for #Google?

Google is looking for a few good beta testers — well, a million of them.

The search giant announced Wednesday it is beta-testing a new feature — one that will show results from yourGmail when you search in Google; the results will appear in a separate box down the right-hand side.

Want to sign up? Click here. The first million sign-ups will see Gmail results on their search pages, rolling out over the next week or so.

This is what your results will look like:

The trial represents a massive increase in the amount of data Google is searching — a doubling, in fact. “The total Gmail data is about the same size as our search corpus,” says Google’s Sagar Kamdar, Director of Product Management for ‘Universal Search.’

And if your co-workers are looking over your shoulder and you don’t want to display your Gmail search results? That’s fine. Google has added a button above the test area, marked “hide personal results.”

Is this something you’d sign up for, or are you worried about the privacy implications? Let us know in the comments.
