20101108 Have now fixed the issue where a query "+treet lisp" was having the + stripped out (I found out about encodeURIComponent) so the script now works if you're prepared to always use the search button that it creates. Easy enough to forget to do that.

The new paging links still don't work properly.

20101115 Now replaces Google's redirecting pager links with our own non-redirecting ones. You can now search, and move around in the search results, and do fresh searches from our replacement search button, without getting redirected.

Latest version to remove more Google timed functions and event handlers - they are remarkably persistent.

Latest version uses a more robust way of deleting Google's global variables. I've also taken out all the useless removeEventListener calls, since what I was trying to do isn't supported by JS anyway.

Fixed bug where the replacement pager links mangled special characters. Also made the links bigger and centred them.
