Description

Many web browsers on other platforms are sprouting dedicated "search"
gadgets. PopSearch brings similar functionality to IBrowse, AWeb and
Voyager in the form of a small pop-up window that can be assigned to a
fast link button or toolbar icon. PopSearch allows you to enter search
terms or paste them in from the clip board. It can be configured to use
a variety of search engines.

Features

* Perform Internet searches without waiting for the search engine front
  page to load.
* MUI interface implemented using rxMUI (my first (releaseable) rxMUI
  application).
* Supports IBrowse, AWeb and Voyager (I use IBrowse mostly so bug
  reports from AWeb and V users are especially welcome).
* Paste in search term from the clipboard.
* Select the search engine to use from a list.
* Users can add additional search engines to the configuration file.
* A search engine can be set as the default for quick searching.
* A drop-down list enables you to quickly recall previously used search
  terms.

Requires

IBrowse, AWeb or Voyager - Most testing has been carried out with
                           IBrowse 2.3.
rxMUI - http://web.tiscali.it/no-redirect-tiscali/amiga - Tested with
        version 32.9.
rexxtricks.library (download from Aminet) - Used to read the clipboard.

Version History

0.4 Beta (2nd November 2003)
   FIXED: A bug where search URLs with the search terms embedded (rather
   than at the end) were mangled.
   CHANGE: Enhanced integrity checking on the prefs file so PopSearch
   does not attempt to load bad lines.
   NEW: Included PopSearch.prefs file with 10 search engines
   pre-configured: All the Web, Altavista, Aminet, Ask Jeeves,
   Dictonary.com, Google, Google.co.uk, Metacrawler, Teoma and
   Thesaurus.com (more can easily be added).
0.3 Beta (1st November 2003)
   NEW: Added a drop-down menu of recent search terms used in the
   current session.
   CHANGE: Pressing Return in the search gadget now activates the
   search button for quicker searching.
