googleSearch (CSE) component Component

This is the good old googleSearch component:
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/external-contents/web-search/4903
with one key difference: it uses the Google's new Custom Search Engine (CSE) at the backend.

With Google's new Custom Search Engine (CSE), you can do many exciting things such as:

- search across multiple sites

- add refinements to your searches

- upload annotations

Very Important
==============

Please make sure you have set up a Custom Search Engine in your Google's account before you can use this component. Once you have created a Custom Search Engine, Google will assign a unique CSE ID to that engine. You need to enter the CSE ID into the config page to start using this component.

Latest Version
==============
v1.6 (for Joomla 1.6), v1.7 (for Joomla 1.7), v2.5 (for Joomla 2.5)
Released March 15, 2012

Native version of the googleSearch (CSE) component for Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5!

Live Demo
=========
Please click on the demo link above. You can try keywords such as "menu", "joomla", "treeview", etc.

It's my favorite search component. It worked fine with j 2.5 but it's not supported to j 3.x and @ present its bit out dated. If updated and developed for joomla 3 it con't get below 5 star....

This component is exactly what i need: good customization capabilities, usage of the new Google CSE API, perfect integration in the site and the search field.
