i don't mind the mint flavour google search in general at all, but there's some cool things you can do in standard google search which don't seem to work with the mint flavour
for example, I often use google for getting currency or unit conversions - its a great feature which saves me soooooo much time, and i'm sure most people don't even know its there.
try typing this into http://www.google.com
convert 36.50 usd to gbp
sadly doesn't work with mint google.
if there's any way that mint's google can be tweaked to enable all of google's funky features thats would be truly awesome!
