Searchling is a free, quick and unobtrusive way to access your favorite search sites in MacOS X. Once running, Searchling appears as a small icon (the 'G', for Google) in your menu bar alongside your other menulings. Click the icon and a small text field and two pop-up buttons will appear. Enter your search and hit return...poof, you've got results in your favorite Web browser. The source code is available.

What's New

Version 1.1 adds the following:
  • Sites definitions now sorted in Application Support directory
  • Easier to edit, won't be overwritten with newer releases

  • Clicking the menu icon while its displayed will toggle it
  • Better support for right-clicking on the menu icon (not perfect)
  • New magnifiying glass icon
  • Added Google:Groups and Google:Mac to defaults
