Cool search add-on’s for IE7

How cool is this? Over on the IE Team Blog there’s a post on how you can add custom search engines to the new Beta of IE7 (apparently Beta 2 will include the ability to do this without hacking your registry… nice!!) They use MSDN search as an example…. and I’ll bet it’s easy enough to bodge it to use Technet instead – how handy would that be?

Sean Alexander has posted a link to a zip file that enables you to automatically add 32 – yes, you read that right 32! – “custom” search engines!! He also (very kindly) includes instructions on how to create your own entries, and some other tips for using the search functionality of IE7.

Very, very cool – and user extensible…. as Thomas Hawk would say “Hot Donkey“!!
