How does SearchBar work ?
All the design behind SearchBar was to make it very very simple
To make a search, just launch SearchBar, choose your search
engine, enter your request and press 'enter'.
How did SearchBar start?
I found myself one day of august spending way too much time
just opening my browser, typing 'google' waiting for the page
to load, entering the text in the field, and typing enter.
So I looked for a search bar on versiontracker (my second
favorite search engine after google, even though it serves
a different purpose) and couldn't find anything that was quite
what I wanted, so I decided to write the SearchBar. The next
day I had SearchBar 0.1 (back then called GoogleBar), that
could search Google and only Google, then I decided to add
versiontracker, and then kept on adding features, and today,
several months later, we have over 50 different engines tons
of features and thousands of happy users!
Frequently Asked Questions :
- The SearchBar HotKey does not seem to work:
Please make sure that this HotKey is not already used by another
application, or by the system (cmd + space is often used to
switch between keyboard layouts, other HotKeys are used to
enable and disable the accessiblity functions of the system).
