Google Search for WinRT

Google Search has been released in WinRT Store. I have played a little with this application and I'm really not impressed at all. The application was not optimized  for WinRT from the performance point of view. Maps shows you the Desktop page which is too heavy for the ARM processor. Blogger does not work properly. Voice Search failed to recognize my broken English 70% of the time. YouTube asks you to install flash player even when it runs properly if you open it from IE. The Search tool works but it does it well when you run it from IE so I do not know at this point if it's a good idea to waste your HDD space in this half cooked application.
