    I haven't tried it but I've got two concerns off the top of my head about it.

    - It only supports up to wp v2.0. Maybe not be an issue but considering all the changes from 2.0 to 2.2 and then to 2.3, it may be an issue.

    - It requires a third party site to preform the search. Again, may not be an issue but knowing how hard it is sometimes to get Google and Yahoo to fully index a site, I'd rather have results pulled from the database, even with the extra load on the server. Then you ahve to worry about third party privacy concerns, having your visitors go off site, etc.

    Just my two cents and, again, I haven't used the plugin.
