Very cool. I had never heard of a custom search engine before. I could see creating one of these for a research project where the students need to find information quickly from a large number of web resources. Thanks for adding another useful tool.

I have heard of Rollyo but never tried it. Am going to set up an account right away. Your screencast was very helpful at demystifying custom search engines. Thanks! --Kim

Thanks for sharing this tool. This looks more portable and easy to use than Google CSE.
