Getting IE to search UKSBSGUY.com, companyweb or any other site you happen to like

I like using IE 7 - I use the tabs all the time, I like the integrated search, I use the Live Toolbar too.

Then I discovered that I could add new search times into the IE7 and I thought this was amazing.  I have included the web site that builds custom searches and also two search config downloads - one that enables searching of UKSBSGUY.com and one that searches http://Companyweb - assuming you have search enabled as per this entry. (For completeness I also include SBSBPI and UKSBSG search clauses too)

So, how to build your own search options for the nice little box in IE7 - go to IE 7 Search Builder page and follow the instructions (which is basically doing a search on whatever page you prefer with the text TEST and then past the URL.

The searches can be found at the download page on UKSBSGuy.com.

Hey, neat!

It might be worth mentioning that Windows Desktop Search can be configured to search companyweb using a similar technique, but it needs to be done using Group Policy.

Pity IE7 will still be behind the game on supporting web standards, particularly CSS2 support. This is freely admitted by Dave Massy, IE Program Manager, in his blog post

I want to have the freedom to choose my web browser and have the content displayed correctly and not have websites tell me my broswer isn't supported!

Cheers,

Vijay
