How to create your own search engine in the quicksearch bar?

Post by flashpeak » Sun Aug 17, 2003 7:38 pm

SlimBrowser can help you extract search engine data from the current web page automatically. To do automatic extraction, observe the following steps:

Open the search engine homepage, e.g., http://www.google.com
Click inside the input box where you are expected to type the words to search for. Keep the blinking caret inside the input box.
Click the dropdown arrow near the icon at the left end of the quick-search bar to get the list of search engines. Select "Create your own search engine" towards the end of the menu. You will see a dialog showing the extracted data after that.
Review the data and make modifications if necessary. Click "Save As" button to save the data as a search engine definition file (*.qseg).
The new search engine will be immediately available from the drop-down list of engines.
