    Default Federated Search For Windows Vista

    ... kind of!

    For using IE as an alternative to Federated Search Connectors:



    1. Hop over to the site you want to create the Search Connector for, say – deviantart.com
    2. Now in DevArt, search for “TEST” (all caps)
    3. Copy the URL to the clipboard & head over here.
    4. Paste the URL in ‘Step 3’
    5. Type DevArt in ‘Step 4’
    6. Install

    You should now have DevArt in your IE search box on the top right. Screen shot:



    Go to any site & search for “TEST” (without quotes) & paste the URL in ‘Step 3’. So essentially, now you can easily search for any site via IE without having to go to the site, pretty much like Federated Search.
