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
  • Displays warning if you mess up the sites.xml file (and uses defaults)
  • 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

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

This has got to be one of the more frequently used apps on my machine. I don't understand why it's no longer available for download. If Ambrosia really thinks they can add value that's actually worth buying, they would would allow the continued distribution of this app.

Anonymous, you are missing something: the point is that you can (and should) customize it to search in your prefered search engines, *not* only in Google! - Anyway, meanwhile it has been assimilated by Ambrosia :-(

Crap app. What's the point if you can only search in Google. Bloody pointless as you might as well have your browser running.

Superb software that works very well. It could use a better method for editing sites, however.
