Google has launched a new layout for Google CSE (Custom Search Engine), which displays results in an overlay, over top of any content on the page.

The company says that developers will benefit from the changes because it only takes seconds to create, for one. "We simplified the creation interface to get you going faster," Google's Custom Search team said in a blog post.There's just a single code snippet for the search box and results, which developers can place anywhere they want the search box to appear.

Features like autocomplete, image thumbnails, and results sorting are now part of the default experience.

For users, Google says the new design brings an "uninterrupted browsing experience".

"Faster, more simple search means more chances for your users to discover great content from your site," Google says.

If you want to take a look at it, w3Schools has it up and running:
