script type
This vimscript allows you to search Google inside Vim. You just need to enter the command ":Google <search_term>" and Vim will switch to text-based browser 'links' and search Google for <search_term> just entered.

Example: :Google vim rocks

To quit from links and return back to Vim click on 'q' then 'Enter' twice.
install details
As any other plugin in Vim. Copy the vimscript to your ~/.vim/plugin and make sure that you've got 'links' browser installed in your box.

Or you can modify the vimscript to use 'lynx' instead
