glad I found this thread, tried search and came up with nothing I needed and thought the same that I had been hijacked. Apart from the date thingy the GZ search was fine or, I was used to it.

I hate that pop up - worst feature on the site ever.

People should just not be stupid and use google search. They just need to spend 5 more minutes looking at the results.

I would like the ability to refine my search by date (past week, etc), user, specific forums.

I don't think its stupid to use GZ search at all, if its there and works the way it did or better then I'll use it.

Not a great fan of the pop up style - IMHO it's a bit distracting - would prefer to see it located in a similar position to the current (google) one.

Yikes, I'm not a fan of that pop up search box either. Using iPad Safari. The pop up thing jiggles a pixel left or right when I scroll through a page.
Personally I don't search on GZ a lot so I would prefer not to have the pop up all the time, but I appreciate the effort to make the site more usable.

Cheers,
Joseph

Edit. Also I guess the site is being indexed still? As the search function doesn't seem to return any usable results. Searching for iPhone generates 3 results, one of which is the forums in general.

Thought some spyware had gotten in to my browser. Definitely glad I checked this before going on a witch hunt.

I add my dislike of this popup.  I also thought I had been infected with some spyware. I prefer the existing search

I thought I had unwittingly installed some browser extension too; glad I found this thread (ironically, using google).

Just finished looking for adware as well :)

Yep also don't like it, plus it didnt work. What's wrong with the search box at the top?

Edit: Oh I see it hasnt crawled the site yet.

Sorry, that's what I meant. The GZ google search gets better results than that terrible terrible pop up.

It's not the best, especially how is says "search this website" Could it be worded better?

Unless it hasn't crawled the entire site yet, I couldn't say it's very useful. 

I searched 'nexus 5', expecting the topic with 87 pages to appear first. But got this.

I like that there's a better search facility, but anything that pops up or moves I find distracting. Can it be a standard link in the header? I'll block it with adblock if it stays, which I generally disable for GZ on most of my computers.
