52. Search The Web - You can now customize your search box, utilizing the Search Partitions feature, to include the ability to 'Search the Web'.

53. SSI Functionality for Search Templates - Silver and Gold customers can include remote files as part of their search templates, in order to insert dynamic content into their templates on the fly.
