What's New
Version 1.3 adds the following:
  • Added german localization (David Kiltz)
  • Rewrote entirely the Preferences panel, it now looks like a real Mac OS X application's preferences panel
  • Added the ability to add separators to the the engines menu
  • Added the ability to sort the engines by name, and by drag and drop
  • Added frtracker.com (http://www.frtracker.com)
  • Added dogpile.com (http://www.macplus.net)
  • Added WQXR Grove Music (http://www.wqxr.com/cgi-bin/iowa/cla/learning/grove.html)
  • Added dogpile.com (http://www.dogpile.com)
  • Added osxfacile.com (http://www.osxfacile.com)
  • Added frtracker.com (http://www.frtracker.com)
  • Added chezmarc.com (http://www.chezmarc.com)
  • You can now have neither the icon in the menu bar nor the icon in the dock (beware though, you really should set a HotKey first, or it's going to be hard to get SearchBar back to the foreground if you close the window)
  • Fixed bug that caused the incorrect window to reappear when relaunching SearchBar (vertical/horizontal big/small)
  • Fixed bug that caused the position of the horizontal SearchBar window to be used in place of the vertical's Note: there is more to come to customize the engines menu, just hold on! I really wanted to get a new version quickly with this updated preferences panel, that's why there is still some work on my to do list. I say 'some' but there is a lot of work left actually (see the To Do section for more info on what's next).

Not a bad program. Nice interface and I like the way it sits in the menubar, however the reviewer below has a point. Hopefully see this feature included in the next release.

Still no customisation option which makes it pretty useless unless you're into all things U.S. Where's the choice to put non-U.S. search engines in?

Great for a free app. I would highly recommend this easy to use app. By my count, there are 47 different search engines/sites included in this program. Kudos to the designer.
