After a few months of being on the shelves, what do people make of Google's Custom Search Engine? Evidently, with a bit of XML and script experience, you can fully integrate into your site very easily.

How often does it update the index? Does it include Supplemental Results?

Do a search for CSEs: http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=003884673279755833555%3Aqh-obyohuog

How often does it update the index?
Like Google.com (it's a restriction of Google's main index).

Does it include Supplemental Results?
Yes, but only if you have <=3 sites in your CSE.

I think the auto-generated homepage for CSE's looks plain ugly. Other than that it would be cool for Google to embrace technologies like XHTML Strict + CSS to simply let us plug-in our own CSS to a semantically correct laid out results, for advanced layout refinements.
