I thought ecrypted search is useful only when using POST rather than GET
POST 'hides' your search words in the encrypted transmission.
GET reveals your search words in the url.

Side topic.
I use this bookmarklet (from Ruderman?) to edit the inputs on a page from POST to GET
j(function(){var%20x,i;%20x%20=%20document.forms;%20for%20(i%20=%200;%20i%20<%20x.length;%20++i)%20x[i].method=%22get%22;%20alert(%22Changed%20%22%20+%20x.length%20+%20%22%20forms%20to%20use%20the%20GET%20method.%20%20After%20submitting%20a%20form%20from%20this%20page,%20you%20should%20be%20able%20to%20bookmark%20the%20result.%22);%20})();
Sometimes the result page is an error.
Of those errors, sometimes there are very large parameter values in the result url.
Of those, sometimes deleting most parameters from the result url, causes the result page to work properly.

Maybe the reverse bookmarklet would work on some pages?
