I’ve had that bookmarked for over a year now, but completely forgot about it. Bookmark it, then set it to load in the sidebar, and you’ve got a nice little Google sidebar. Kind of a round about way to do it when you can Google from the built-in search bar, but it does let you search Google News, Groups, Images, etc. all from one spot without having to load new pages.

Perhaps this is the first google page that is XML compliant. At least, google doesn’t have a great track record yet with valid pages.
