    can any1 remind me how 2 make an address bar shortcut to google??

    for example u could type 'goo best XP site ever'. A similar thing can be done for other search engines, altavista, dogpile, etc.

    Have u ever tryed the Goggle toolbar?
    U get a extra toolbar below the ordinarey ones and from there u can enter your search frase directly!

    HereĀ“s the link to get it: Google toolbar

    yeah tried the google bar but the address bar shortcut is easier to use, plus u can search using other engines also.

    Look at the "My Favourite Tweaks" thread. There is a tweak that allows you to change the address bar to use google as the search agent.

    I may be out in left field and not understand exactly what you want - but I just opened google and then added it to my favorites - I also did the same thing with "view new posts" on this site.

    The bottom line is I can go directly to google search, or "view new posts" by using Favorites!

    its just seconds quicker is all

    for example

    g pizza would search for pizzon google
    could set up m for msdn a for altavista and so on

    its just a tiny bit quicker :)

    there's nothing quicker then what I showed you in the my favorite tweaks thread...if you didn't see it, take a look

    as far as the google toolbar, to me it takes up to much space.
