Search using Google without opening your browser

No PageRank indicator (I know Jill will be devastated).
Another question. Does the Google mini-viewer count as another browser that pages have to be optimised for?

I have anyway, so that's 1 and counting

That's why the Google bar is great. Very simple and intuitive to use.
Just my opinion of course.
I actually use a powerful (and user-editable) search facility in the browser Sleipnir - which is essentially a 'skin' for IE (it's freeware) that provides tabbed browsing, and a powerful, tailorable search bar.
The search bar is useful for checking a site's ranking on lots of different search engines relatively quickly and easily. You can edit the search bar to add any search engines you want, and using additional elements youc an customise the way results are displayed. Of course, you can do this manually with all the search engines (for example, show 100 results instead of 10), but it makes it easier if you can save these settings and access them from a drop-down menu.
One that I use a lot is the search that produces a numbered list of results so you can determine the ranking of your site at a glance. The following is a search that does this and has been restricted to UK results on google.co.uk:
Search google.co.uk - UK only - for 'Jill Whalen'
Anyway, I think I've gone off on a slight tangent....

After all that's the easiest way to do a Google Advanced Search. Just type
into the HotBot Deskbar and there you are!
