Site is http://theapplegeek.ru Could you describe, how to do this replacement?

Can you post a screenshot of how it looks in Chrome? Probably just a couple CSS tweaks needed.

You probably just need to shorten it up a bit so it fits in those browsers. Do you know how to resize the search field with CSS?
