Naw, I was thinking other's might have an iGoogle account to track their history - some of the less paranoid among us. It's nice to be able to browse my history from any computer. The link also helps explain what I'm talking about, imho.

13670 here and cannot remember when I started. I guess I use google less - I've found myself going to wiki more often lately when I know what I'm looking for. Browsers also help me out nicely: I type 'en' and browser suggests 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet', then I just Ctrl+Backspace the Internet and type my new query.

Google Chrome has a nice search query. I just type "wiki <search>" - like "wiki dood" and it goes right to the page. Still might go through google, though. I also have keywords setup for msdn, bbc, etc.

FF also has a search engine search box on the right side at the top. I use it extensively. Comes preloaded with Google, Yahoo, Ebay, Wikipedia, Amazon, and some more.

Strangely, FF doesn't have MSN in the default list of search engines.

Hmm... and IE doesn't have Google in the default list... very strange indeed.

Who uses MSN search anyways? If MSN.com would have stolen 1 second off my every search (would I not have used Google), it would have taken 3h:48m:34s longer for me to search and therefore I would be crazy right now.

Btw, I never could understand the Chrome query. Easiest to use is Google because you just type instead of the URL, but how can I get less keystrokes to get to 'Strontium' than this:
'en.', <Down_arrow>, <Ctrl+Backspace>, 'Strontium', <Enter> ?

Very Happy

Chrome also auto-adds search engines for sites you frequent.

Well, that was my question (or actually I didn't ask...). How unfrequent I am, because it doesn't want to add wiki to the list :S

Any way to force it?

Right-click on the address bar and "Edit search engines..."

Any URL with a variable string can be added.

Yes they do. In the drop down, just click "manager search"->Get More Search Engines. It's called Live Search now but there's a MSDN search in there, too.

No one uses Live Search. Actually, it makes up about 6-8% of search but it's been declining for the past year.

Okay, but I don't think that can be considered "default".

There are 46 other options also. Some obscure search engines there!

Search engine stats change regularly and rapidly, the figures don't mean much to me.

Then go by the relative amounts. All the services that report this stuff show Google has most of it while Microsoft's search has practically nothing and Yahoo has a little more than MS.

You have to follow something by somebody somewhere but when all of them say the same thing then you have to believe it's in the ballpark.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%s is the magic string Wink thanks!
I'm using w shortcut right now in Chrome. Does anyone understand all the formatting done to Google's own search? Its really a big mystery to me.
{google:baseURL}search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}sourceid=chrome&ie={inputEncoding}&q=%s
