Using the Internet Channel

The Sherlock Internet channel is your gateway to performing searches on a collection of Web sites, all strung together by a billion miles of wires, cables, fiber optics, and satellites, that we affectionately call the World Wide Web. Not all sites are Sherlock friendly and therefore, not all the information that we want is available for display within the Sherlock window. When you use the Internet channel, you type the search criteria for the information you're looking for, and Sherlock displays a listing of all sites listed by relevance to your search criteria. Therefore, the better you describe what you're looking for, the faster Sherlock can sort through the maze of possible Web sites, and give you the results you're after.

Use the Internet Channel

Open the Applications folder, and then double-click the Sherlock icon.

Click the Internet button.

Type the words or phrase you want to use to search the Internet into the Topic Or Description field.

Click the Search button (magnifying glass) or press Return.

Web sites are displayed (by default) in order or relevance.

Click on a Web site to display the first paragraph of text on the site.

Use the Scroll bar to move up and down through the list.

Double-click on any displayed site, to launch the Web site in your browser application (default Safari).

Quit Sherlock.
