    I find it so much easier to use than the vBulletin search.
    What happened to it?

    ... Bring it back, eh?

    That's not what he was talking about. That is a lot more difficult than just using the normal vBulletin search.

    Anyone one using Chrome can go into options, then manage search and add this

    Name: iPod Touch Fans
    Keyword: ipt
    URL: http://google.com/search?q=site:ifans.com %s

    Then in the address bar type ipt and hit tab to search.

    I'm sure you will be able to do a similar thing on firefox but I don't know how.

    I myself liked it as well, Bgizzle removed it because it wasn't being used that much and added a lag when loading pages.

    That sucks, I really liked that search, much better than the other search function.

    It shouldn't be too difficult to make a browser haxie to add in a search box directing to 'site:ifans.com'.

    BGizzle said it was getting less than a thousand hits a day, so he removed (as someone else already said) because it added loading time.
