Transforming Google CSEs into OpenSearch descriptions is simple, even when Firefox needs some proprietary <moz:SearchForm> magic to get it right.

For older browsers not supporting OpenSearch each CSE has its own default gadget for uses on iGoogle, blogger, and elsewhere. I created a smaller configurable tiny CSE variant, to use it edit the cx-number, e.g., 001904119753490578822%25:zvsejdqm-pw for the xyzzy-CSE.

CSEs hosted by Google have one issue, creators cannot easily publish the source for users wanting to know what the CSE really does. Here's a snapshot of the sites currently covered by the xyzzy-CSE:
