"Try anyways" mode

This mode automatically performs a Google search if xenForo search system haven't found anything or failed.

For example, by default you can't search words that are shorter than 4 letters. In this case you will see the following error:
The search could not be completed because the search keywords were too short, too long, or too common

With "Try anyways" mode enabled you will see this:

Flawless and looks good. Simple install, easy to use. If you want a google search, especially because of words with less than 4 letters, this is what you want.
Just installed at my demo site and see how it works. It works really well. "Try anyways" mode is great and very useful.
Good stuff, simple and easy to use. Does exactly what it should do and anyone needing Google search should just install this right now.
