Seen a few people wishing it was still available as the new one totally blows ....
heres a way to use the old one (at least 'till it stops working anyway)

this is for firefox - unless chrome and others have an extension or way to make it work ....
(but of course you can simply bookmark that page below)

1. install the "Add to Search Bar" Add-on, Then ...

2. go here:;sa=Search
and ....

thats it. it'll ask for a little input from you, if you so choose to rename / set a different icon, etc.,etc...

then will be available amongst your list of search engines ...

There is a Firefox add-on called Search Site 3.2 that adds a search box button to search the site you're on.
