    I hold down on the home button and it brings up the option, but it only launches the search app.

    I believe that once you have Google search active, then tap the menu (3dots) and tap settings and tap Google Now. There should then be an option to turn On.

    I never enabled this, but if I swipe upwards from the very bottom of my phone, like between the "back" and "home" buttons, it brings up Google now and all the cards and everything. I thought it was like this for the entire new RAZR line, but maybe that's not the case.

    Does Google Now work with any browser, or does it require Chrome?

    Ok I think I know what you are asking. Tap on your search window so the keyboard pops up, click on the 3 bars in the bottom left corner on phone and then tap the "Settings": option. there will be an option to turn on "Google Now"

    Google Now is a widget that is part of Google Search. Try Apps } Widgets. Then drag the Google Now widget to an open screen. It will take most/all of a spare screen. Google Now will ask for permission to start. If it says "no cards" try a Google search. This should activate Google Now. Google Now might also need permission to sync with email and calendar.
