How can I get my own customised Google search page like Firefox? Example: http://www.google.co.uk/firefox

Also, can I earn from Adsense like that?

You can build your own Custom Search Engines using Google then monetize it using AdSense. I think the idea is to find useful links on a topic and build a niche engine. I don't know much more than that myself as I haven't used it, but you could start from the documentation page at http://www.google.com/cse/.

It seems this is the approach Ubuntu take: start.ubuntu.com/11.04 – Craig Oct 4 '11 at 7:53

Write your own web browser and then make Google the default search engine. Google may pay you $57 million so you probably won't need to use Adsense.

According to your link it was Google who paid Mozilla. I expect you're right about the adsense though! – Craig Oct 3 '11 at 13:31
I didn't read carefully enough. I've amended my answer! – paulmorriss Oct 3 '11 at 13:41
+1 but I can't accept this as the answer, sorry – Craig Oct 3 '11 at 14:19

You become an Adsense premium publisher which isn't something that's easy to do. Most sites that become popular and get a lot of traffic opt to sell their own products or to hook into sweet affiliate advertising deals rather than work with Google like this.
