We used to have Google Search on here BUT now its running alongside XF and you can choose whichever you want. IF your search using XF doesn't return anything, supposedly it will automatically switch to Google Site Search and deliver results that way. Haven't tested that yet.

So, when you go to search, you will now see a modified search box, that looks like this:

You can hit either "search", which uses XF or you can click the G, which will give results like this:

Advanced search now includes Google as well:

Just noticed if you do a standard search, the results page also has a tab to show Google results. Thats rather neat.
