Some advices from bloggertemplates[dot]org

(1) AJAX libraries used for the sidebar menu effect are moo.fx and stripped version of Prototype. Although these are the most lightweight libraries available for creating effects like this templates has, these javascripts can adversely effect your page loading times.

(2) Recent Comment adapted by using the tip told at Blogger Help.

(3) It’s a free tool offered by Google, and its nothing to do with AdSense for Search. It can only produce results for the pages indexed by Google, and may not work if your blog haven’t got any.

(4) This template has been tested with Internet Explorer 6, Opera 9, Safari 1.3, Firefox 1.5.x, and although layout seems okay with all of these browsers I suggest you to use Firefox for best performance. If you haven't downloaded yet, why don't you for safer and faster internet experience?
