Chapter 13. Surfing the Web > Using Sherlock to Search the Web

Using Sherlock to Search the Web

The Mac's built-in search tool, Sherlock, can help you search the Web using various search resources at the same time. In fact, Sherlock will probably be the only search tool you ever need. Sherlock is very powerful and it enables you to find information on the Web quickly and easily. Its features include the following:

  • Search multiple sites at one time Using Sherlock, you can search multiple locations with one search. And you can control exactly which resources are searched. You can also create your own sets of sites (called channels in Sherlock) to search.

  • Save your searches You can save your search criteria so that you can rerun a search by double-clicking a file. Try that with a Web search engine!

  • Create shortcuts to Web sites you find When you drag a Web site from Sherlock to your desktop, a shortcut is created. You can return to that site by simply double-clicking that shortcut.

  • Limit your searches to the type of information for which you are looking You can use channels to choose the sort of information for which you are looking. For example, you can ask Sherlock to search only news-related sites.
