Nope. That must just be another extension of the beta. I know google is big into targeted invites.
You may occasionally notice when you do a google search that a dropdown box appears as you type with suggestions of common searches. It's another beta product called Google Suggest. Right now a few people are redirected seamlessly to it when they go to the Google homepage, while everyone else uses Google normally. Alternately, if you search for "google suggest," the first hit should be the beta page where you can mess around with it and offer feedback. Just another cool example of Google creating totally awesome web apps.
