Some gov.sg search engines have switched to “Google Custom Search”, yaay!

Some gov.sg search engines have switched to “Google Custom Search”, yaay!

In January this year, I lamented about the existence of “Enhanced Singapore Government Online Search ” on gov.sg sites. I wrote in and an unnamed MICA Webmaster asked for examples on 30 Jan 2012, which I provided. An acknowledgement about taking it up with IDA, then silence. Happily, while searching a sg.gov webpage today, I realised they were using Google Custom Search. A check with a few other gov.sg sites indicated the switch too – LTA, SPF, MOH and NParks: The public will enjoy the change and I am sure glad this was fixed! Happy New Year everyone!
