I use that one a *lot*. It is primary for network admins I guess.
Just a note, this URL is to become depracated in the near future. The new URL for MSKBA's is;

Scroogle away folks;

Alias: scroogle
Shortcut: http://www.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/nbbw.cgi?Gw=%s

Now you've got Google without all of the crud that comes with it :wink:

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work with the ?intitle etc searches, but it's great for the majority of them.

using Grokker

Post by gary100856 » Tue May 10, 2005 12:24 am

If you want to use the Grokker visual search page, which creates a "map" of relevant search items based on a Yahoo search the line

http://www.grokker.com/applet.html?query=%s

in your Avant options search section will do it

[Tip] Searching Torrent Files with Avant Browser!

Post by nano » Wed Jun 29, 2005 5:07 am

I added the official BitTorrent search engine to the "Quick Search" list in Avant. Here's how I did it.

1. Go to "Tools" --> "Avant Browser options" --> "Search Engine"
2. Click on "Add"
3. Type in "bt" (or whatever you like) as the shortcut, and type in http://search.bittorrent.com/search.jsp ... it2=Search as the URL.
4. Click "OK"

You are done! Now type "bt" followed by a space and the name of the movie or music you want to download in the address bar and hit enter. You will see a list of torrent files matching your keywords.

I don't know how many people know this, but URL aliases & quick search strings don't have to be unique.

For example, I have 'imdb' take me to the imdb home page and also search imdb if I place text to search for after 'imdb'.

I found this out by chance, although, I must have been using it for a while as when I checked "Search engine" & "URL Alias' I had an entry in each for 'imdb'

??? :eh:

How can I find the string for a search? Like say for youtube and demonoid? Is there an addon that will let you right click a search form and find it, kind of like in Opera?

Perform a search > copy the string > replace the search term with %s
