7. Web Browsers > 7.2. Searching the Web from Internet Explorer

Searching the Web from Internet Explorer

Most people spend half their time on the Web searching for stuff they want to read, watch, play, or download. Here’re a few tips to help you search smarter.

The Google Toolbar

If you use Google 400 times a day, you’re wasting valuable time by surfing to Google’s home page every time you want to search. Improve your efficiency 80-fold by bringing the Web’s most popular search engine to you: install a Google toolbar in Internet Explorer. The super-handy add-on lets you run a Google search no matter where you are on the Web (Figure 7-7).

Note

The Google toolbar works only with Internet Explorer. If you use Mozilla, Netscape, or Firefox, try the Googlebar, described on Section 7.6.2.
