gary_rip posted his Custom Google Search last year to great acclaim judging by many responses to various threads. http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/260536/hukd-help-hotukdeals-google-search
I've taken his idea and made it into a Greasemonkey script which replaces HUKD default search box (top right) with hist Custom Search. HUKD Advanced search is not affected.
This works in Firefox only - so if you are on FF, get to installing greasemonkey and then install the HUKD Google Search mod.

Obviously only use this if you prefer gary_rep's search. It may save you a few clicks and makes Custom Google Search more integrated into the HUKD experience. You can tell when your HUKD page is using the Custom Google Search when the "Go" button has changed to "Go>".
Comments, suggestions and bug comments welcome.
