............Cool idea, but has major flaws in both usefulness and design.
1) Nearly impossible to drag. Needs to be bezeled.
2) You need to change the info.plist to reposition the close button.
3) I don't know what's up with the width and height, or the background image, but these hinder the look of the loading effect.
4)You may as-well ad options, or "tabs" to do an image search, news, etc.
5) The reason most people probably didn't make this is that google search is already integrated into safari. Unless this widget becomes better, I don't see it becoming popular. Hopefully the final release is better. But good start if it was your first widgetsmiley

This was my first widget, and I am aware of the flaws, I posted it to get comments like these to help make it better. I am also in need of some coding help. I plan on improving this greatly though. Thanks
