Google AJAX Search API available in beta

Google has released a new mashup software in beta.

Version 0.1 of Google AJAX Search API is now available for free download.

The Javascript library allows developers to create embedded search modules that can dynamically search over multiple Google media (Web, Local, Video etc.) and include the results directly alongside other Web site content, such as a blog.

Google does not recommend the software for use yet in mission-critical Web sites, but it is seeking out user feedback through a discussion board dedicated to the new program.

Eventually, Google AJAX Search API will be integrated with advertising, Google's Web site said.
