Posted it too soon.

More Results now uses AJAX and loads instantly. Images are no longer "mashed"

Not new. The latest version with news, blogs and videos included all of these.

I think the Maps is new there because I was messing with the SearchMash API that you found...

How many countries does the Maps thing work for? Dosn't work on England, UK, United Kingdom or Great Britain

<<Images are no longer "mashed">>
The Images are still there, or do you mean something else?

Before they were at the bottom of the search results in a horizontal bar

They are now on the top for some searches, Examples:
United Kingdom [ http://www.searchmash.com/search/United+Kingdom]
Moose [ http://www.searchmash.com/search/Moose]
Billie Piper [ http://www.searchmash.com/search/Billie+Piper]
Images [ http://www.searchmash.com/search/Images] (Wonder why this has an image result </sarcasm>)
Photos [ http://www.searchmash.com/search/photos] First Image result links to /iraqis-tortured/ Shouldn't Google do Something about this?

A few more things,
Search Videos and a Video bar comes up.
Search Blog and the Blog bar comes up.
Clicking on a green link now searches only that site. (previously it came up with a menu)
Clicking on Images goes to the Web Page their on, I don't think it's new but it's annoying if it's a long image based web page.

Oh and is there a Firefox search plug-in? I'm not sure how to make tham and I can't find one.
