Chapter 13. Using Sherlock 2 > Searching the Internet

Searching the Internet

If you have Internet access, you can use Sherlock to search for Web pages with information about topics that interest you. Unlike other Internet search engines, Sherlock can search multiple directories (or search sites) at once. Best of all, you don't need to know special search syntax. Just enter a search word or phrase in plain English, select the search sites you want to use, and put Sherlock to work. It displays matches in order of relevance, so the most likely matches appear first.

To search the Internet

1.
With Sherlock active, choose Find > Search Internet ( Figure 5 ) or press to display Sherlock's Internet channel ( Figure 39 ).

2.
Enter a search word or phrase in the edit box near the top of the window.

3.
Turn on the check box beside each search site you want to use to search.

4.
Click the magnifying glass button to begin the search. Sherlock searches the Internet, displaying its status while it works.

5.
After a moment, the matches begin to appear. You can begin working with matches immediately or wait until Sherlock has finished searching ( Figure 40 ).
