I just launched a website and would like to know what people think

the internet. It would be great if you could try a search and tell me

simply is a tool no one will want of. Thank you

Just read this and though ... GREAT IDEA ... especialy as I was

You should replace

 <input maxLength="256" size="55" name="q" value="">
