World's Coolest Search Utility Updated
OK, the Google Toolbar
is pretty cool, especially if you use the Experimental Features
, but it's nowhere near as cool as the recently updated, but clumsily named Dave's Quick Search Deskbar
. This handy little search box sits quietly in your taskbar and enables you to quickly search dozens of sites with a few keystrokes. Want to quickly see the IMDB's listing for Harrison Ford? Type imdb harrison ford. That's it. To search ZDnet's downloads for the new version of Trillian, type zdn trillian. To search Amazon.com for Hacking Exposed, type amaz hacking exposed /books. These are just the ones I use every day. Version 3.0
adds tons of new searches and customization features. Very cool, and free. Of course you can always buy some of Dave's Cafe Press
merchandise to help support this open source effort. Note to Windows XP users, make sure you right click the taskbar and uncheck "lock the taskbar" or you won't be able to see your new toy. You can put it back after you are finished installing.
Oh, and by the way, leave your sex toys
home when you travel by airplane.
