OMG! This is great! I just found a gem!

I am learning about computers and do research EVERY day on the internet, as well as spend time on this site to learn and to help when I can, so here is my typical method of searching Google for a topic or answer:

Let's say I am reading someone's post here at BC. They have a problem. I will highlight the keywords, right click, copy, minimize the window, open another instance of IE (which has Google set as the home page) right click paste and hit enter.

Not any more.

Now I can highlight the keywords, right click, choose Search, and a new IE window opens with the Google results! WOW!

I wish I could say that I figured out how to do this on my own, and then I would give it to the world and leave it a better place than I found it, but I didn't. Here is where I found it:

Download, install, reboot. It's that simple.

John Fitzgibbon, you are a god to me!

Some of us who use alternate browsers have that functionality already built in; but you are right, it does save a lot of time when you are researching on the Web.

Oh Yes! Now I see that Opera and Firefox has that feature already! As usual IE is behind the curve. BTW, Microsoft says that the next version of IE that will come out with Vista will have tabbed browsing like Opera and Firefox, so once again they are playing catchup!

Thanks.

Microsoft says that the next version of IE that will come out with Vista

It is expected to be released before Vista. "The plan is to include a refresh for IE 7 for Windows XP SP2 as well as a build of IE 7 for Windows Server 2003 SP1."

One of my friends is using the new version of IE currently. I had some time to play with it for a few mins today. I in my opinion I feel that IE still has a lot of catching up to do. I am currently trying to find a link to download it for anyone who is interested. I believe it is only the Beta version though.

Thanks for the tip Albert.

I have just discovered Copernic Desktop Search (maybe everyone else knows about it already). It is supposed to be much better than Google for desktop searching. I cant believe how fast and efficient it is.

You are welcome. I downloaded Copernic and am experimenting with it. It is certainly fast for internal searches!
