Rafael Proença (http://www.cypherbios.org/blog/) has just introduced (http://www.cypherbios.org/blog/?p=47&language=en) Ubuntu Search Beta, which is a Google CSE (custom search engine) that searches official Ubuntu resources. After entering a search term, you can narrow the results down to forums, official docs, community docs, wiki, Launchpad, etc.

That's actually really cool. Added it to my search engine list. Should make finding answers to Ubuntu questions a lot easier and quicker.

Thanks for the heads up.

This is a very cool idea, and I gave it some test searches and got very useful results. Nice :)

Now all we need is a nice domain name, and a Firefox extension so it can appear in the search box, and we are gold ;)

Matter of fact this should be pre-installed on Ubuntu in the future, hmm.

Very nice! I am impressed. Nice domain name, logo, and the site gives useful results. Good work on the FF search engine as well :)
