googleSearch (CSE) component Component

This is the good old googleSearch component:
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.

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....
