I have coded a website that searches Google WAY FASTER than for you!

Not sure if this is where i'm supposed to post something like this but.. I've just finished a site which allows you to search ONKEYPRESS

It also provides results from Wolfram Alpha, Twitter, and many other sites all at once. I thought it might be useful for many people, so enjoy!

Site: [moderated]
If you prefer only google: [moderated]
Screenshots: [moderated]

I've also updated Images so it displays Google Images alongside Flickr images. And YouTube/Hulu/Vimeo videos alongside Google Videos
or just use the tabs up top

There's also a browser plugin.. just click the top right green button

Tell me if you find any bugs too. Thanks!

Wow that's pretty kool!
That really shows that you got some web coding skills.

I wouldn't say it's "faster" but it just searches as you type.
It's about the same speed as google.

That's definitely cool -- I agree with someone above, I think it's not really "faster" than google, except that one doesn't need to type a query and hit SEND, but instead, the results are coming as you type.

Really neat! Nice work.

Um ... how is this search faster than google ? I mean I searched the word test in both and google searched in 0.06 seconds while your searches in 0.22 seconds. Is this what you are talking about ?

Ironically, if you plug the first line of the OP into Google, LQ shows up. If you do it into his search engine, LQ doesn't show up. May be faster but not as complete.
