So I went ahead and bought it but it doesn't work properly with Lion and they don't bother to update it.

Excellent

I have been using Searchling for al long time. Finally I did the jump to this "new version" and I am very happy with it:

1. No procesor waste
2. Very discreet, cute and clever User Interface
3. Easely customizable
4. And the last but the best: easy Keyboard shortcuts

Before you buy this, try Quicksilver. You can do everything this app does and even more! And QS is free.

Should re-release this as freeware ;)

Not a bad product but with the donationware 'Butler' available as a free download you would have to be nuts to purchase ambrosia's fifteen buck one trick pony.

Absolutely fantastic. I can't live without this app! Being able to search any site I want to and go to any site via keyboard shortcuts I specify is invaluable. The possibilities are endless.

I've tried other applications that do nearly the same thing, but none of them fit as perfectly as this little gem. The clean interface, powerful features, and low price make it a must-have in my book!

I've been trying out iSeek and have one quibble - it takes up too much space in the menubar. Yah yah, I know I can resize it and I could even hide the search field if I wanted to. The problem with the first option (resizing the field) is that it still takes up space in my menubar. The problem with the second option (hiding the search field) is that a simple click of the magnifying glass doesn't return me to the last used search source.

What I would really like is to hide the search field and upon clicking the magnifying glass, the search field slides into view and I can then type in my search. An X could be placed on the right side of the search field in place of the site icon. Clicking this X would again close the search field so only the magnifying glass is visible until I click the magnifying glass again where the search field then slides into view.

That would be truly efficient.

iSeek is a handy little program for Mac OS X that allows you to instantly search for anything you seek, no matter what program you are running. iSeek puts a familiar search field in your menu bar, needing just a click or keystroke to start your search!

iSeek's slick and seamless interface hides a significant amount of power and convenience. iSeek is no mere front-end to Google, it will ship with pre-configured search shortcuts for dozens of useful Internet resources. Look up a word definition in the dictionary, or a synonym in the thesaurus, or even famous quotes that reference the word. Search for information on Google, in popular news sites such as the BBC News, MacNN.com, or even search for software on MacUpdate.com.

Anything that is searchable on the Internet can be added to iSeek as a search shortcut that's available in a snap, and your recent searches are saved, too, for even quicker access. The real power of iSeek is that it is also highly configurable: you can add whatever search sites you find useful, and easily share them with your friends.
