Custom Search Accelerator
One of the new features of Internet Explorer is Accelerators, where you can right click on an element of the page and work with that element immediately. One of the more popular type of accelerator are the search engines - which allow you to select text and search elsewhere for that text.
This page shows how to build and deploy one for Google for your own country, and is based on code provided by Google for their Canadian site. In this example the UK site is used.
To make things easier, we shall start with the completed code, and there are some notes below on what to change - although most of it is fairly self explanatory.
Change both of those lines to the same thing - so "Search mit Google DE" for example.
Once you have completed the customisations, save the file with an xml ending - so GoogleDe.xml for example.
Deployment of the custom search accelerator requires a web server. You cannot just double click on the file in Internet Explorer.
What about Google Custom Search?
You can use the same code with Google custom search, although a few more changes are required.
Once you have completed the customisations, save the file with an xml ending - so customsearch.xml for example.
The same instructions for deployment apply to this customisation as well, so you will need to use a web server. If you have built the custom search engine for your own site, then host it there.
The accelerator in the above example is also available from the same page on our kbsearch.info site here.
