What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

It would be mighty nifty to have search box that uses google custom search on the stackexchange.com site to search all the stack exchange sites.

This would both help drive traffic to the Stack Exchange site and help us find stuff that lives on multiple Stack Exchange sites.

With all the up-and-coming Beta sites, I think this feature will be critical. Otherwise we'll be seeing a lot more dupes, because people aren't going to search ten different sites before posting their question. –  Brad Mace Oct 6 '10 at 5:22

This is now live. Please try it out and see how you like it.

Currently we're showing ads while we evaluate it. If people are getting a lot of use out of it, we can pay for the enterprise version to remove the ads.
